Artist's Description

I have visited this place last Sunday with sister.

Nikon D90 18-105 VR AF-S DX NIKKOR f/3.5-5.6 ED VR:RAW
Edited a bit by Aperture version 3 on Mac Pro
………………
Muang Boran just outside Bangkok, is an outdoor museum in Samut Prakan covering 96 hectares or 240 acres with scaled models or replicas of ancient city ruins and historical monuments from various parts of Thailand.

The periods of these ancient ruins and monuments cover the Dvaravati, Srivichai, Lopburi, Lanna, Lan Chang, Sukhothai, U-tong, Ayuthaya, Thonburi and Rattanakosin eras.

This outdoor museum preserves the past architecture, art and culture of the different regions in Thailand with ruins and monuments located in an area in the shape of the map of Thailand.

Intensive research was done to ensure authenticity in the reconstruction of these structures. Where the originals were destroyed, reconstruction relied on historical records.

The area in Muang Boran or the Ancient City covers 600 rai (96 hectares or 240 acres, 1 rai = 1,600 sq m or 0.4 acres). There are 116 scaled models or replicas of ancient ruins, monuments, buildings and structures that sum up the ethnic and cultural heritage of Thailand. Some of the exhibitions are creative designs to symbolize religious beliefs and concepts.

The Ancient City offers a cross section of Thailand in one location that can be covered in a day.
