Yesterday, I visited The Ancient City at Samut Prakan province. This is my second-time visit here. Also for the first time, I tried Thai traditional dress.
Ancient City is one of the world’s largest outdoor museums features a 200-acre city with 109 scaled-down copies of Thailand’s most famous monuments and architectural attractions. Knowing history is always a good experience.
A visit to the Ancient City is comparable to a Thailand-round journey within a day. Can see every historic place. There are also some original creations that you will only find here. Muang Boran, it’s a little Thailand, a little Laos, Cambodia, China, and Myanmar in one place.
The Ancient City creates kind of atmosphere that induces visitors to perceive and appreciate the continuity of history, cultures, religions, arts and customs of Thai people from then until now.
Haw Phra Kaew also written as Ho Prakeo, Hor Pha Keo and other similar spellings, is a former temple in Vientiane, Laos.
Chinese and Thai mixed architecture buildings during the Ayutthaya period.
The Great Hall of Vajradhamma. In ancient Thai belief, our soul travel from the pagoda which represents our birth year, and once in our life, if we have the chance to travel to the pagoda to make a wish. After our death, our soul will leave the present world and will be returned to the same place we came from.
That white horse is real. hehe At that time, Some people were filming. I heard the movie name is Khun Phaen. Good location for the historic movie.
Khun Chang Khun Phaen is a long Thai epic poem which originated from a legend of Thai folklore and is one of the most notable works in Thai literature.
Ramayana or the Tale of Rama is an ancient Indian epic telling the story of the migration of the Arayan people into the Gangetic Plain of northern India. A hermit, named Valmiki, who composed the epic in Sanskrit verse. The epic is called, Ramayana.
