Twin Plumeria

Twin Plumeria at Mrigadayavan Palace.

Mrigadayavan Palace (Thai: พระราชนิเวศน์มฤคทายวัน, sometimes spelled Maruekatayawan, RTGS: Maruekkhathayawan) is a former royal residence and tourist attraction in Cha Am, Phetchaburi Province, Thailand.

The palace was commissioned by King Vajiravudh to serve as a holiday villa. The king drafted the designs for the villa, which consists of sixteen teak buildings raised by concrete pillars and linked together by a series of walkways. Construction took place during 1923–24, and was overseen by Italian architect Ercole Manfredi.
