Saranrom Park is known as the palace garden in the old city.  This is the fountain at the entrance of the park and only a stone throw away from the Grand Palace.  This park has a long history.  As the Crown Prince, King Chulalongkorn once resided in Saranrom Palace; it also once housed the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.  Today, it’s nice, quiet ‘green area’ for the old city.

Villagers uncovered the ancient pottery for years prior to an anthropology student stumbled upon some pottery. He sent some of the pottery to the museum and the Thai Fine Arts Department to determined if the ancient pottery could be of a civilization that have disappeared. The formal excavation started in 1967 and found the several graves dating back to the Bronze Age.  Since then modern-day villagers learned that reproductions can supplement their income.
