Unusual Places of Bangkok Thailand
First Execution Chamber, Wat Pathum Khongkha, Yaowarat
Chinatown's Wat Pathum Khongkha is a pretty but unremarkable temple that once served an extraordinary, rather grisly purpose. Not only a religious shelter, it was also used as execution site for members of the Royal Family in the early Rattanakosin period. On its execution stone, several members from the first and third reigns were disposed of. Not in entirely tasteless fashion, mind you - in accordance with ancient traditions dictating that no royal blood should touch the ground, the victim was placed in a red velvet sack and beaten to death with a scented sandalwood club.
Forensic Museum, 2nd floor, Adulaydejvigrom Building, Siriraj Hospital, 2 Phrannok Road
The Museum of Anatomy next door, housed in an old 1930's building, contains a close-up and personal look at the human body.
The Ancient City, Kilometre 33, Sukhumwit Hightway, Bangpoo, Samutprakarn
Monuments, traditional houses, and temples taken from Thailand's past, then reproduced with lots of detail, give you a feel for the Siam of a hundred years ago. Many are almost as big as the originals.
Corrections Museum, 436 Mahachai Road, near Rommani Nart Park
It was once the site of the Bangkok Remand Prison, an old and overcrowded penal facility located in the heart of Bangkok. In 1990, the cabinet relocated it to Lad-yao and turned the site into a public park called Rommani Nart. Three blocks, a cellblock, a side of the prison wall and two watchtowers were preserved, and converted into this Museum of the macabre.
