Part of the six-building complex that is the Jim Thompson House Museum in Bangkok, Thailand and built c. 1959 CE. Thompson built a traditional antique wooden Thai-style house using temple doors from junk shop finds and gathered six old teakwood buildings from the ruins of Ayutthaya (c. 1351 - 1757 CE) - the second Siamese capital after Sukhothai. This photo was taken in July 2019 CE.
