Situated on the north side of Rama IV Road, it is the largest park in Bangkok and is named after the birthplace of Lord Buddha in Nepal. The park, which was initially the location of a museum, was built on royal property by Phra Bat Somdet Phra Poramentharamaha Vajiravudh Phra Mongkut Klao Chao Yu Hua or Rama VI. His Majesty had intended that the space be used to help spur the country's ailing economy following World War I  . The park’s main attractions include the King Rama VI Monument and two artificial lakes, although there is much to see and do at the park, which offers an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.
