" Mareerajaratabulung Residence "
Sanam Chandra Palace.
Nakorn-pathom province. The Kingdom of Thailand. 1/7

(***** A SPECIAL SERIES for my dear friend AQUILES ***** )

H.M. King Rama VI had this hall built around 1916 with M.C. Itthi-thepsan Kritdakorn as its architect. This is a two-storied building built with golden teak in European neo-classical style with some adaptation to suit the tropical climate. It was built as a match for the Chaleemongkolasana Residence with a covered walkway from the back across the moat to the front of the Mareerajaratabulung Residence. The covered walkway has a tiled roof and is fitted with windows along the whole length.
The inspiration for the construction of the Chaleemongkolasana Residence and Mareerajaratabulung Residence came from the play, My Friend Jarlet, by the two English playwrights, Arnold Galsworthy and E. B. Norman. H.M. King Rama VI translated the play into Thai and entitled it “True Friend.”
