It’s not too far to walk from the city’s main attraction from the train station, which is fortunate as Lopburi has very few private taxis and tuk tuks available.

Lopburi is a very old settlement, believed to have been established in the 6th Century by the people of the Indian influenced Dvaravati culture. There is, however, relatively little in the way of physical reminders of that period in modern day Lopburi. What Lopburi does have, however, is a series of temples built by the Khmer people of Cambodia during the 12th and 13th Centuries. The most impressive of these three temples are Phra Prang Sam Yot, San Phra Kan, and Wat Phra Sri Rattanamahathat. Although these temples have been altered considerably over the centuries, they still feature the distinctive configuration of prang towers which represent Mount Meru, the home of the gods in Hindu cosmology,
Lopburi became an important city again during the 17th Century under King Narai, who briefly ruled from Lopburi and built a palace in city to accomodation his family and his staff. The palace, now known as the Somdet Phra Narai Ratchanivet National Museum Lopburi, is open to visitors and features a series of temples and other building converted to house museum displays. Within the grounds of the palace is the very delapidated Ban Vichayen, which was once the residence of Constantine Phaulkon. Constantine Phaulkon is fascinating character, born in Greece, who came to Thailand as a sailor on a British ship during the 17th Century and managed to work his way up through the Royal Court to become the first minister of King Narai.
