Lohaprasad

Tuesday, June 25th, 2013

Built in 1846 by Rama III, this fascinating building is modeled on a 2,500-year-old Indian original, and a later Sri Lankan monastery with meditation cells for 1,000 monks. This Lohaprasad (Metal Castle) was built as a repository for Buddhist images. Explore its many stairways and rooms and enjoy a superb view of the Golden Mount. (Daily, 8 a.m.-6 p.m.)
