The Red House initially home to the sister of King Rama I is a must see in addition to the Phuttaisawan Chapel which reflects the magnificence of Buddhist temple architecture. The Old Transportation Room houses an interesting collection of ivory carvings, palanquins for Thai Royalty and Elephant Chairs.
