Wichayen House (Ban Wichayen) Tha Hin, Muang Lop Buri, Lop Buri. Wichayen House, or Ban Wichayen, served as a residence for envoys paying courtesy calls to King Narai the Great in Lop Buri.
 
Indeed, the first group of French ambassadors who arrived in 1685 stayed in this beautiful compound. Later on, Greek-native government official Constantine Phaulkon was granted the title of royal minister, ChaophrayaWichayen, and given a house on the western side of the compound, lending the present-day compound its name.
 
The compound within Ban Wichayen comprises 3 sections: a grand two-storey building made of bricks and a narrow and long one-storey building with an arched entrance in the west.
 
The buildings have maintained their authentic European architectural style; windows and archways reflect the Renaissance style. A Christian church reveals a blend of East and West, with entrance and window facades in the Thai RueanKaeo style.
 
Travel: Wichayen House is located on Wichayen Road, 300 meters from Prang Khaek to the north of PhraNaraiRatchaniwet.
