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