Presentation Sanam Chan Palace

Thai name : สนามกีฬาพ
My opinion:
The Sanam Chan Palace is a structure looking like a tiny French and English styles castle but with adaptations for the Thai climate. Rama VI ordered its construction when he was crown prince. The palace consists of five buildings and a shrine dedicated to Ganesh. Its construction lasted from 1907 to 1911.
Sanam Chan Palace is located about 2 km west of Phra Pathom Chedi and covers an area of ​​approximately 355 hectares. It consists of the following: Piman Pathom Hall, Watcharee Rommaya Hall, The Charli Mongkol Asna building, The Marie Raja Rata Ballang building, The Tabkaew Hall, The Tabkwan Hall, Ruen Tabcharoen, The monument of King Rama VI, Sri Chand Nam.

It is easy to find the palace. From the chedi, go straight on Ratchadamnoen Road and you're there.
The palace also has a museum dedicated to King Rama VI.
Note that when we were there, it was closed due tp New Year extended holidays that is why we only have a picture of the gate.

How to get to Sanam Chan Palace ?

As there are almost 2 kilometers between the palace and the Phra Pathom Chedi, it is better to take a tuk-tuk. You can easily find outside the gigantic chedi. Otherwise, count 20-25 minutes of walking.
