The Garden of the Gods at Muang Boran

The Garden of the Gods at Muang Boran

There are five different “regions” at Muang Boran, or the Ancient City, in Bangkok and in the Central region, you’ll find the Garden of the Gods.

There are some interesting statues in the garden all representing Hindu gods who have been a part of Thai culture for generations.
