This shed where several royal barges are displayed is located on Khlong Bangkok Noi off the Chao Phraya
River not far from Phra Pin Klao Bridge. These barges were used on Royal and government occasions and formerly served war vessels. The most
beautiful and well-known barge is 'Suphanahong' used by the King only when he made his Royal river procession for the Kathin ceremony a Buddhist
tradition of offering robes to monks usually during October or November. The Royal barges proceeded during the Rattanakosin Bicentennial celebrations.
The unique design and decorative details of each barge should he of great interest to all visitors.
The shed is open to the public every day from 8.30 a.m.- 4.30 p.m. There is an admission fee of 10 baht.
