FAMOUS BUILDINGS -  Chulalongkorn University  
 Known as:        
 Description:   The campus of Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok occupies an area of 101.9 ha in the city centre's Pathum Wan District. It accounts for just over half of the 184.5 ha of land owned by the university, the rest of which is commercially developed or used by other institutions. The campus sits on what was originally royal land surrounding Windsor Palace, granted for the university's use at its foundation in 1917 by King Vajiravudh. Ownership of the land was transferred to the university by an Act of Parliament in 1939.
Chulalongkorn University, nicknamed Chula, is a public and autonomous research university in Bangkok, Thailand. The university was originally founded during King Chulalongkorn's reign as a school for training royal pages and civil servants in 1899 at the Grand Palace of Thailand.
The university campus is dominated by the Auditorium, in front of which stands the Monument of King Chulalongkorn and King Vajiravudh.
