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.
