Overlooking a lake and near the entrance to the Palace. Dedicated I believe to a historic king from before the current Ratanakosin period, it is an attractive little building, but you need to ask a local Thai about its spiritual significance.

Small shrine we saw on our Ayutthaya that is dedicated to King Prasat Thong. Also known as the Golden Palace of the God King. Definitely stop and see this beautiful shrine and peek inside.

Nice small shrine just on the left as you enter Bang Pa-In Palace grounds. It is overlooking the small lake. And surprisingly there was an Air conditioner inside the shrine even with the door open so it was cooler inside. The shrine is well maintained and there are fortune telling sticks and written sheets to look up the meaning

Just after you get into the palace grounds this is the first - on your left - that you see. You can have a look inside or make merits to the Buddha. A massive and old sacred tree overshadowes the structure.

According to the Bangkok Post, "Ho Hem Monthian Thewarat is the "Shrine of the Golden Palace of the God King" and it is a small stone monument contained within the Bang Pa-In summer palace complex. Inside is a small Buddha image where people can make offerings. It's a pretty unassuming building, but it is in the context of a greater... More

One of the many things to see in Bang Pa-In Palace is this Shrine which is apparently a significant part of the Summer Palace

This is probably the first stop you'll make when you enter the grounds of the Banh Pa-in Palace. Nothing very spectacular about it, and like all the other sub-parts listed in these pages, it doesn't require a separate attraction tag. However, don't miss the huge China-pot in front of the monument. Nice art work on the surface. And inside, it... More

Not really needing it's own attraction listing, the "Shrine of the Golden Palace of the God King" is just a small stone monument contained within the Bang Pa-In summer palace complex. You wouldn't just go to see this monument, you'd happen across this monument as you explored Bang Pa-In. Inside is a small buddha image where people can make offerings.... More
