In former times, boats, either rowing or sailing, were a principle mode of transportation by which traders came to exchange their goods on Khlong Samrong. A distance of nearly 1 km. along both sides of the canal has been occupied by long-existing shops selling various kinds of goods, including delicious food, desserts, consumer’s products, household decoration items, souvenirs, as well as, beauty salons, boutiques, pet shops, etc. A canal thronged with boats commuting and vending food, sweets, and seasonal fruits makes a scenic sight for visitors.

The Erawan Museum
The Erawan Museum – This three-headed elephant, Airavata was born of Khun Lek Viriyapant’s ideas and imagination. It was inspired by his wish to preserve his collection of antiques as a contribution to Thai cultural heritage. Many of these were priceless objects of art they were also held as sacred objects for people of ancient cultures. According to ancient traditions they were believed to bring blessing and prosperity to the land and its people, and therefore must not be lost to outsiders. It had been Mr.Viriyapant’s concern to find a way that would keep these objects safe and that would also be suitable to their traditional functions.
The elephant would be a symbol of the centre of the universe and, as such, the building would function symbolically as the spiritual heart of the land where sacred objects of the land were housed and revered. He then designed the building and gave the design to Khun Pagpean Viriyapant, his eldest son, to begin construction. Already during the construction, the building attracted people who came to worship
