King Narai Reign Fair is held from 16 to 20 February 2007 to commemorate the reign of King Narai the Great (1657-1688) of Ayutthaya. The King is well known for promoting international diplomatic relations, especially with the European countries. Thai people also recognize his reign as a revitalization of Thai literature.

Narai Ratchaniwet Palace

Narai Ratchaniwet Palace is located in the centre of Lop Buri town between Ratchadamnoen Road and Pratu Chai Road not far from the railway station. Now the whole compound has become the site of the Lop Buri National Museum. In this ceremony, the palace will be used as the site of the fair. There will be parades, cultural demonstrations, folk games of Thai children in the olden days, exhibitions from government officers, and OTOP booths selling local products. The highlights of the fair are Narai’s royal style dinner as well as light and sound presentations of the reign’s fascinating history.
