“Devarana” (pronounced te-wa-run) comes from Thai-Sanskrit, meaning “garden in heaven”. It dates back to ancient Thai literature, called “Tribhumphraruang” also known as “Traibhumikatha”, written by Phraya Lithai. In this literary work, the writer described these particular gardens as situated at heaven’s gates, surrounded by gardens and ponds, with a heavenly scent and a nurturing environment. The décor of the gardens glimmers with silver and gold, and is filled with natural stones and gems, while soft melodic music played by harp, flute and other traditional musical instruments is floated in the air.
