                Uttaradit Provincial Cultural Hall is a two-storey wooden building which can be removed and re-installed into a perforated design called Kanompang Khing. The builder’s idea was inspired by Vimanmek Mansion (a golden teakwood mansion) in the Dusit Palace complex. The hall was formerly a place where those who visit Uttaradit Province were received. At present, it is where the antiques in Uttaradit Province are kept. It is normally not open for visiting. The visitors have to contact the Cultural Office of Uttaradit.

                Uttaradit Provincial Cultural Hall is located on Paedwa Road, Tha-it Sub-district, Mueang Uttaradit District, Uttaradit Province. It is next to the provincial vice-governor house and opposite to the provincial governor house.

                Uttaradit Provincial Cultural Hall is an ancient wooden building which is approximately 90 years old. It looks similar to other wooden buildings constructed during the reign of King Rama V. This wooden house has two floors. The wood sidings are placed overlapping one another, while the window panels comprise of many shutters. This building can be removed and re-installed into a perforated design called Kanompang Khing. The front of the building is a protruding balcony with sharp corner. Below the corner is left empty. The top of each column is well-decorated. The use of curved wood is influenced by Roman architectural style, called ARCH. The builder’s idea was inspired by Vimanmek Mansion (a golden teakwood mansion) in the Dusit Palace complex. The hall was formerly a place where those who visit Uttaradit Province were received.

 

                At present, Uttaradit Province reserves this cultural hall and keeps the antiques in Uttaradit Province inside. The hall was awarded the best preservative Thai architecture in 1994 by the Association of Siamese Architects under Royal Patronage. The building is currently dilapidated and has been repaired for many times. It was granted the budget for painting in the last reparation in 2005. It is normally not open for visiting. The visitors have to contact Uttaradit Provincial Cultural Office first.
