Bangkok. Park Muang Boran
• Bangkok. Park Muang Boran
At this time, completing the journey in Thai Bangkok, I wanted to avoid the routine pre-flight shopping and see something new. The choice fell on the park Muang Boran (Mueang Born or Ancient Siam), applying the open air on the title of the largest museum in the world.
The park is located on the territory more than 350 hectares, and its territory was built more than 120 buildings in real life scattered throughout Thailand and erected at different times by different rulers of Siam. Most of the buildings - up, often life-size, not preserved Thai architecture masterpieces. Another group - transported from the various regions of the Kingdom of the real objects. The third - the result of creative design of sculptors and artists of the park.
The museum was founded Thai millionaire-philanthropist named Lek Viriyaphant. Park's mission - to save the cultural heritage of Thailand, to enable a large number of Thais and foreigners to familiarize with the pearls of ancient architecture.
Construction of the museum began in 1960 and continues to this day. The museum was opened to the public in 1963 and recently celebrated its fiftieth anniversary.
Work masters sometimes so iskustno that distinguish a remake of the old buildings is very difficult:
I wonder how many gardeners need to have such a territory right?
The most beautiful building of the park - a replica of the palace of great beauty:
In the artificial channels placed copies of the royal boats:
And this is a fantasy of contemporary artists:
Very beautiful gazebo:
