The barges belong to the time when River Chao Phraya along with its tributaries was the main courses of transportation. Boats used to ply on these channels not only for common people but for the royalties too. Every barge is carved out of teak and mythical creatures are engraved in its prow. Some of the barges were rowed by as many as 50 oarsmen, who were specially trained to carry out the royal duty. The barges have made only 16 appearances on water in more than last 6 decades.
