First time overnight in Lop Buri, took an opportunity to check around Built some 350 years ago, King Narai's palace was monarch's retreat during non-raining season. At that time Lop Buri was established as second capital of Ayutthaya Kingdom. Apart from palace ruins, there is a national museum too. I arrived at 3:45pm and gates close at 4:00pm, unfortunately no enough time to see inside the museum. What used to be a Hindu Shrine, now happens to be Lopburi landmark. During reign of King Narai the shrine was converted into a Buddhist temple. Other than that, same old monkey biz going on around the town.
