Vichayen House  was built at the royal command of King Narai the Great. It initially

served as a residence of Chevalier de Chaumont, the first French ambassador to Thailand

during the reign of King Louis XIV. Later on, it was occupied by the Greek, Constantine

Phaulkon, who later became King Narais advisor and was granted the position of royal

minister Chao Phraya Vichayen. Located just 300 meters from Prang Khaek, the

compound has many interesting visible ruins including the Roman Catholic Chapel, a hall

of residence for ambassador and mission members, brick water tanks and fountains.

Admission fee is 30 Baht.

Prang Khaek is the oldest monument of Lop Buri and the oldest Khmer-style Hindu Shrine to be found in Thailand's central region. A fascinating small compound of Khmer remains, it consists of the three brick prangs constructed without adjoining corridors. Prang Khaek was restored by King Narai the Great in the 17th century. Recently restored by the Fine Arts Department, it is located on Vichayen Road, near the Narai Ratchaniwet Palace
