Maruekhathaiyawan Palace

The Palace is built raised from the ground on pillars and entirely made from teak wood. Its very attractive architectural style is completely different from that of other Thai Palaces. The overall design of the Palace was done by the King himself, and it was built to be a very comfortable place with excellent ventilation and niches filled with water in the pillars to keep out ants. King Rama VI used the Palace as a summer residence for him and other members of the Royal Family until his death in 1925.
