Tipitika Scripture Hall

Home • Architecture • Tipitika Scripture Hall

     Situated near the Drum Tower and the Phra Boromthat Chedi Maha Chakripipat Stupa, this building was built in the traditional Thai practice of keeping the Buddhist Holy Scriptures, the Tipitaka, and other Buddhist texts in a structure built above a pond of water to protect them against ants and insects.

     This hall was built in an applied Thai architectural style with a simi-lar shape to the Tipitaka Scripture Hall of Wat Phra Singh in Chiang Mai Province.
