This is Ganesa Shrine in Sanam Chandra Palace. You can see Phra Pathon Chedi located in far sight.

=================================== More Information {English language} from http://www.palaces.thai.net/day/index_sc.htm

Ganesa Shrine This traditional spirit house was built as a centerpiece in the front grass lawn, to enshrine Ganesa, the Hindu god with an elephant's head. Ganesa was believed to be the god of knowledge, art, and poetry. He was believed to be a trouble dispeller as well.

H. M. King Rama VI was keen on art and creative composition. The Ganesa shrine was thus built as the heart of his ‘home' at Sanam Chandra Palace. It graced the palace and allowed the king the opportunity to pay homage to this god of knowledge. From the balcony of the Prayer Room on the, Bhimarn Prathom Residence, the Ganesa, and Phra Pathom Chedi stand in one straight line. A devotee praying in the Prayer Room can pay homage to these three much-revered objects at the same time.

Now I learn something. We used to call "Prawisnu" about 50 yeas ago, when there existing Nakorn Pathom Agriculture School. Right behind the palace that's where we lived. Notice the Two perfect square soldier domes? That was our dormitories. Too bad our school is no longer exist. Got ranover by Silapakorn U. now.
