This is part of the Grand Palace precinct and is interesting to stop and examine. We've not been to the real Angkor Wat so it was interesting to see the detail and layout of this mini version.

Mini Angkor Wat is a min. immitation of Angkor Wat. It is placed in the Thai Royal Palace and was contracted by King Mongkut, who ruled the land in first half of 19th century.

it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn
the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and
most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to
this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off
