Sala of Ramayana ศาลารามเกียรติ์

Sala of Ramayana ศาลารามเกียรติ์
It is considered a Thai tradition to build public places such as temples and Thai Sala (pavilion) in a com munity. Functioning as a public center, they are used in Buddhist merit-making ceremonies and other social activities. The structures, finely constructed, not only illustrate the well-to-do status of the community, but also show the generosity of the person who intends to build the places for public use.
Ramayana is very popular literature among Southeast Asian countries because it tells of the story that praises the supremacy of the king who, in everyday peoples view point, performs like the Hindu god. His greatest duty is to bring peace to his kingdom, like god bringing peace to the world community.
The five grand open sala at Muang Boran were built in a pond used as either a public summer house or religious ceremonial center. Ramayana Pavilion (Sala of Ramayana) is named after the story of the murals painted inside the sala.
