- Seven storied Palace -
This pyramid shaped, seven storied building is thought to be an unusually shaped stupa. It is said that similar stupa’s can be seen in Cambodia and in Siam. It is thought this has been built for the Cambodian soldiers who were working under the king as place of worship. The building has four entrances from four sides. Also there is stair case to reach the upper levels. The person who built it, the original name of it or the purpose is still a mystery.
This is made out of brick and is over 30 feet (9 metres) in height.
