The Chali Mongkhon Asana Residence with the statue of Ya-Le in front.
The Chali Mongkhon Asana Residence is actually a rather small building, built completely in the style of a European medieval castle. It was, for a time, called Tamnak Ya-Le. "Ya-Le" was the name of the king's favorite dog, and there's a statue of him in front of the building.
The small two story structure was used for royal audiences, although there are private apartments on the second floor. Also on the second floor is a bridge across the pond connecting to the Mariratrata Banlang Residence.
Mariratrata Banlang Residence
The Mariratrata Banlang Residence was used by the consorts of the king. The small house is more in the style of an English country cottage and has only a couple of rooms on each floor. There is, however, a large great room on the ground floor.
You can enter either building and walk across the bridge to get to the other residence, but since you need to leave your shoes outside, you'll also have to walk back across the bridge to retrieve them. Remember that you need to show your admission ticket to the attendant at the entrance to the residences.
Note: No photography is allowed inside the palace buildings. You must leave any bags in the lockers provided before entering the buildings.
