The buildings in any squares of the world would be compared in terms of time; the old and the new; it is phenomenal to consider the constructions erected upon times before and after in a scale of fashion and design depending upon the ongoing patterns in civilizations that occur at changing lifestyles of people. So it is highly interesting to watch what is new or contemporary and what is old in terms of architecture in a city with a tradition of innumerable mileage in culture and interactions of societies.
In the city of Bangkok in Thailand, we can see a kind of comparable aspects of architectural varieties that exemplifies this phenomenal representation of time and civilization so curious to watch out , at different squares and lanes of this shore of white elephants!The old residential lanes found in the Chinese corner stand out as an erection of old styles established once in a while when the Chinese settlements started flourishing as a township in the land….even the backdrops of them speak out that sentiments of another time far away from the new…..,the people with that tradition living now would bring back the air of the past…!
The color of past and the lost glory of another time is evident in the decaying residential lanes in the Chinese area!
What is ancient and more precious are maintained in the temples and at the places of cultural significance and centers of prime attractions in terms of tourism and worship.The heavy bells and towers around are the specimens found in the central shrine of Lord Buddha in the city.
In succession to what is old and ancient in architecture , the contemporary style flats with palm-trees planted atop are laid out as part of the novel town planning and taste preferred by the contemporary society in the main stream of city life in Bangkok !!
