Bhutan Garden at 'Royal Flora Ratchaphruek 2006"
Bhutan Garden is elaborately built by the Royal Bhutan Government (represented by Ministry of Agriculture of Bhutan) with a budget of almost 10 million baht (263,000 USD) as a permanent gift in celebration of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand. It stands on a 500-square-meter area in 'International Outdoor Garden" zone of the Royal Flora Ratchaphruek 2006. Its notable stone wall and garden design have received a great deal of attention from the public for its distinctive architectural design, including a pray-bell, a unique Bhutanese feature that Bhutan revealed was built especially for His Majesty the King.
