Wat Atsadang Nimit

This is the other landmark which is clearly visible from the boats. Wat Atsadang Nimit is no temple with monks and other temple buildings, but is part of the only royal palace build amidst the sea. Phra Chuthathut Ratchathan is the palace consisting of various building in various styles.  The palace was built in 1892 by King Rama V (King Chulalongkorn) but abandoned when the French briefly occupied the island later. The large round white Stupa in Lanka style serves as an Ubosot, Congregation Hall and is the base of the Chedi on top. Not sure what function the old Pagoda had.
