Lop Buri


Lop Buri was an ancient Khmer capital dating from the 10th century. Today, it is a modern garrison town and provincial capital 153 kilometers north of Bangkok.

Several note worthy Khmer-style monuments attest to Lop Buriís antiquity, and the Narai Ratchaniwet Palace, constructed during the mid-1600s by the Ayutthayan monarch Narai the Great (reign: 1656-1688) combines both Thai and western-style architecture, indicating French influences prevailing during that time.
