Mahidol THAI HOUSE
Mahidol Thai house consists of a complex 5 traditional Thai-style houses. There are connection porches and a riverside pavilion building in traditional central Thai style. Khun Rabieb Kunakasem made the initial donations for the construction, so we named this Thai house “Rabieb Kunakasem Building” in her honor.
The building was adapted for practical purpose, for example the drawing room is used as exhibition, lecture room, religious ceremony room including marriage ceremony; porches and the verandah are used for Art and Culture Exhibition. Visitors can see shows and enjoy the natural setting. A grove of “Sa-Kae-Tung Trees” is maintained next to the Thai house with local birds and wild fowls flying over head far from the urban chaos.
“Mahidol Thai house” is our pride. As M.R. Kukrit Pramoj said “It’s so nice. You shouldn’t wonder what it is to be used for; it should be built, anyway because in the future others may not do it.” At present, the Mahidol Thai house is managed by the Research Institute for Language and Culture of Asia. It is open for everyone to visit and relax.
