About Travel to Lopburi
Lopburi is a small city of around 60,000 permanent residents with a very long history. Lopburi is believed to have been founded in the middle of the 6th Century by immigrants from India during a period of Thailand’s history when the country was heavily influenced by Indian culture and religion, particularly Hinduism. During the 17th Century Lopburi also briefly became the capital city of the legendary King Narai.
What Lopburi is best known for, however, is the large numbers of wild macaque monkeys which live in the Old Town. These monkeys roam freely around the Old Town in Lopburi looking for food and generally causing a nuisance to the inhabitants who tolerate them partly on account of the local Buddhist beliefs and partly because they attract lots of visitors to the city. The monkeys are generally concentrated in particular parts of the city and to an extent they can be avoided if you don’t like monkeys or you are worried about the safety of your children.
Lopburi has several interesting historical sites. The most popular of these are the city’s three major Khmer era temples (Phra Prang Sam Yot, San Phra Kan, and Wat Phra Sri Rattanamahathat). These temples were all constructed in the 13th Century and feature the distinctive configuration of small and large prangs representing Mount Meru, which is the home of the gods at the centre of the universe in Hindu cosmology.
Also of interest is Phra Narai Ratchaniwet, which is King Narai’s palace. The palace has been restored several times and part of the palace now houses museum exhibits. Near the palace is Ban Vichayen, which is the former residence of Constantine Phaulkon. Not much remains of this large residential complex, but it will be of interest to those who have read about the life of Constantine Phaulkon who was a sailor born in Greece who managed to work his way up to become the most important of King Narai’s government officials.
