About Travel to Lopburi
Lopburi is one of the more interesting cities to visit in Thailand. Although in modern times Lopburi is a small city of around around 60,000 residents, Lopburi has a long and interesting history dating back to at least the 6th Century. Lopburi was also briefly the capital of the Ayutthaya Kindgom, which at the time was the most powerful of the many kingdoms of Old Siam.
Temples in Lopburi
The most famous tourist attractions in Lopburi are it’s Khmer influenced temples dating back to the 12th and 13th Century. During this period the regional superpower was the Angkor regime of Cambodia which successfully occupied large parts of Thailand, including Lopburi.
There are lots of these Khmer era temples in Lopburi, all located in Lopburi’s Old Town area which is located within walking distance to the North and West of the main train station. This Old Town area is popular with leisure visitors to the city and this is where the best hotels and restaurants are to be found.
It is also popular with large numbers of wild monkeys live in this part of the city. The monkeys are a nuisance for the local people but they are generally tolerated, partly because of local beliefs and partly because the monkeys are a tourist attraction. A popular festival is held in November every year involving the monkeys being fed from long tables.
These monkeys have taken up residence in the city’s older temples, the most notable of which are Phra Prang Sam Yot, San Phra Kan, and Wat Phrasi Rattana Mahathat. Despite having been repurposed as Buddhist temples, many features from the original Hindu Khmer temples have been retained. The carved stone lintels and reliefs, along with the prang towers, are reminiscent of the temples of Angkor Wat.
Loburi’s Royal Palace
In the 17th Century legendary King Narai built a palace in Lopburi and made it the capital of his Kingdom for a brief time. The palace is open to visitors, and some parts of the complex, the throne halls in particular, have been well preserved.
More delapidated is Ban Vichayen, which was a house in the palace grounds built for foreign ambassadors and later the residence of Constantine Phaulkon. Constantine Phaulkon was a Greek sailor who became King Narai’s most important minister.
