Today we have a photo of the Royal Sala Thai at the East-West Center on the University of Hawaii at Manoa campus.  This traditional sals (pavilion) was a gift from King Bhumibol Aduyadej of Thailand and bears the Royal Seal.  The sala is a rich cultural symbol of Thailand, commonly used as shelter from rain and heat for quiet conversation, study and contemplation.  This sala was designed by Dr. Pinyo Suwankiri and crafted in Thailand, it was assembled here by Thai artisans and dedicated on March 1, 2008.
