Phra Nakhon Khiri : Phetchaburi

Phra Nakhon Khiri Palace or the Holy City Hill was the first palace built on the mountain range by King Rama IV in 1859 for the King himself and for the royal guests.

It is studded with Wats and various components of the palace such as Wat Mahasamanaram locates on the hill-step, Wat Phra Kaeo which is the temple of the palace locates on the hill-top. The middle peak enshrines Phra that Chom Phet and the eastern peak is a vicinity of the compound. The architectural style of the palace is mixed between European, Chinese and Thai.
