On this are four main monuments: the Reliquary in the shape of a golden chedi, the Repository of the Canon of Buddhism with its mother-of-pearl cabinet that displays the palm leaf scriptures at various times of the year, the model of Angkor Wat crafted by Royal Command of King Mongkut (Rama IV); and the Royal Pantheon where statues of past sovereigns of the ruling dynasty are enshrined.

Scattered round these monuments on the terrace are fanciful animals in mythology, evolved out of the imagination of artists, valued for their aesthetic inspiration. The models of elephants record those of the "white"variety acquired in respective reigns in the past.
