Bang Pa-In Royal Palace also known as the Summer Palace, is a palace complex formerly used by the Thai kings. It lies in the Ayutthaya Province. Most of the present buildings were constructed between 1872 and 1889 by King Chulalongkorn.

Amidst vast gardens and landscaping stand the following buildings: Wehart Chamrunt, a Chinese-style royal palace and throne room; the Warophat Phiman , a royal residence; Ho Withun Thasana, a brightly painted lookout tower; and the Aisawan Thiphya-Art, a pavilion constructed in the middle of a pond. Scattered around the extensive gardens are European statues as well as monuments ordered to be built by King Rama V in memory of members of his family, one of them a much-loved Queen who drowned in a boating accident.
