Sanam Chandra Palace is a tiny castle-like structure built in a combination of French and English styles, but with adaptions for the tropical climate[1] The palace grounds is located on a site Nakhon Pathom, Thailand and consists of five buildings and a Ganesh shrine. The palace was built from 1907 to 1911[2] by King Vajiravudh (Rama VI), and has a view of Phra Pathom Chedi.

Part of the site is now a campus of Silpakorn University. On December 5, 2003 the university returned the palace and surrounding satellite buildings to the Bureau of the Royal Household following the wishes of HRH Princess Bejaratana Rajasuda Sirisobhabannavadi[1] who is the daughter of the former king.

Sanam Chandra Palace celebrated its 100-year anniversary from November 23, 2007 to December 2, 2007.
