Depiction of Sai Sutha Nopadon (สายสุทธานพดล) Mansion, a part of Dusit Palace, i.e. the residential compound of King Rama V, and located in the Royal Garden called Suan Sunandha (สวนสุนันทา), i.e. Sunandha Garden’, where it served as the residentince for the King's guests and visiting allies. After the King's death in 1910, it by 1924 had become the residence of Princess Suthasineenat (สุทธาสินีนาฎ), one of the consorts of King Rama V. When the Princess established a school for her ladies in waiting in order for them to learn both etiquette and handicrafts, the mansion became known as the Nipakarn School. Over time this school expanded to cover various fields of education and it on 17 May 1937 officially became the Suan Sunandha School for girls, thus laying the foundation for what eventually developed into the present Suan Sunandha Rajabhat University. At present Sai Sutha Nopadon Mansion functions as the University's Museum, as well as its Art and Cultural Center. Whereas the name Suan Sunandha refers to the name of the former Royal Garden, Rajabhat means ‘Government Official’. In the top right corner of the postage stamp is the logo for the 80th Anniversary of Suan Sunandha Rajabhat University, i.e. a chadah-style royal crown, the Thai letter S (ส) of the name Suan Sunandha, and the Thai number 80 (๘๐).
