A beautiful gift
The pavilion is a gift from the Thai government and the Thai Chapter of the Wisconsin Alumni Association to the University of Wisconsin - Madison.
The University gave the pavilion to the City of Madison, which placed it at Olbrich Botanical Gardens as an ideal setting to share this cultural treasure.
The Thai Pavilion
The only Thai pavilion in the continental United States.
The only Thai pavilion outside of Thailand surrounded by a tropical-styled garden.
