The palace complex is big in the middle of city centre, few buildings converted to museums which contained lots of old artefacts. Another museum displays the history of king Narai. Went during near midday, the aircond is a good escape from the hot sunny day. Worth a visit only if you have extra time in lopburi and really interested in... More

Having visited several sites managed by the Department of Fine Arts during our stay in Thailand in Nov 16, this was the one that was the best curated; I even commented to others in my party that this was a similar standard as a National Trust property in the UK. Set in immaculately manicured grounds you have a ecclectic collection... More

A good place to start if visiting Lopburi but I arrived on a Sunday and it is shut on Mondays and Tuesdays so I had to rush round it on Wednesday morning. The exhibits of old memorabilia are interesting including the one explaining King Narai's love of astronomy. No photography allowed inside. The grounds are what interested me the most... More

The two working at the site the freaked as I was attacked from all sides. The result was two hudred dollars in medical bills from a hospital in Bangkok including Rabies immunizations.... More

If you have little time for Lopburi, I recommend to visit this place. There are historical palace, temple, and a museum. It's quiet, clean, and has information for you.

Very fascinating journey inside 4 millennia of Thai history. The Palace is so beautiful, and its architecture is really unique being a blend of different styles from around the world. I loved the national museum, which is inside the Palace. (Definitely worth 150 bath, if you can't pay 150 bath for a site and museum of this level just make... More

This Palace hosts the King Nari festival which I would highly recommend going to do. Lots of stalls with food and gifts are there as well as a huge parade and dances and performances.

This is a significant historical landmark of Lopburi province. Apart from admiring the ancient ruins, there is a lot to learn about this critical period of Thai history when trade and foreign relations with Western countries such as France first commenced. There is a museum within the palace grounds, which is beautifully laid out where you can learn the history... More

Entrance fees for Thais is only 30 baht but a whopping and unfair 150 for farang. A number of farang declined when seeing the admission charge. Museum and grounds very interesting in the daytime. But at night we were fortunate to visit the palace when there was a free outdoor concert. The grounds were well lit and Thais dressed in... More

We toured the Isan region this November and saw many ancient temples and palaces. This palace in particular seems very unusual to me for some reason. It is an unusual main building with an impressive temple building behind it but small in comparision to some other great temples we have experienced in Thailand. The surrounding grounds are impreccable like most... More
