M.R. Kukrit's House
It consists of five teak houses, the earliest of which is more than 100 years old. The reception hall was used for public purposes (receptions and banquets) and for religious ceremonies. A raised platform in the center was designed for performing traditional Thai Khon dance, with ornate masks for the dancers displayed on the shelves.
As a traditional Thai home, the garden plays a key role in the design of Kukrit's house. Two low walls on either side of the garden connect the main hall in front to the houses in the rear of the property.
Left of the reception room are the living, reading and music rooms; on the right, a room which is used as a shrine for Buddhist prayer.
In popular culture
The House served as the fifth pit stop in The Amazing Race 19.
