Historical sites

The position of the San Paolo Jesuit Church - based on documentation displayed at the site of the Dominican Church of the old Portuguese enclave - was
incorrectly indicated. In fact, the Jesuit Church has not yet been discovered until today. This new information, based on excavations by the Fine Arts
Department in 2008, has been forwarded to me by
Professor Bidya Sriwattanasarn from the Silpakon University, whom I express my gratitude for the
update. The site formerly thought to be a Portuguese Christian Church is in fact a Buddhist monastery called by the local population Wat Pho Chai (Rang).
The web pages have been updated accordingly. (Tricky Vandenberg - 09 June 2010)

Geo Info
A historical site without some historical pictures would be incomplete. A page on "Old Photography" was thus created under the tab of "Geo Info". The
beginning of a large album?
