The life of a king.

The Vimanmek Mansion is the largest golden teak building in the world. Built in 1900, this former royal residence which belonged to Rama V is located in the Dusit gardens. It is three stories high, built in a delicate style and surrounded by tropical plants. Around it, are residences for the king to house his wives and concubines. The Royal family no longer resides here. These buildings have all been turned into museums, including the Vimanmek Mansion . You can see personal objects and souvenirs of the dynasty, such as silverware, photographs and gifts. You can also see the first modern shower and the King's library. This museum house is well worth a visit for a rare glimpse of royal life it holds within.
