This is a continuation from my previous post - Wat Rakhang.

  • Hor Trai (The Tripitaka Hall)
The Tripitaka Hall located within a tranquil garden to the west of the Ubosot was originally a residence for the King Rama I (1737 - 1809). The small residence is made up of 3 chambers which can be distinctively identified from the first picture. The short concrete steps in front of the building lead to the center chamber.
Prior to the restoration works in mid 2007, the Tripitaka Hall was in quite a dilapidated state. I have posted a few old pictures of this hall at the foot of this blog.
Note: Please remove your footwear at the concrete steps prior to entering the Tripitaka Hall.

About THAIoholic

THAIoholic, the blog, is setup with the initial intention of keepsake. As time goes by, I find it harder and harder for my gray cells (of what left) to remember traces of great places we have been to, good foods we savored but missed, details that I should remember but they slipped away unknowingly.

Then, we have also friends and folks asking little details I thought I should blog them here, because my pea brain is simply no good at recollections.

My partner is a devoted Buddhist, his religion forbids him, and therefore me, from taking beef. As such, it's unlikely that there will be any info about beef dish found in this blog.
