In 1997, Thailand’s supreme court ordered the demolition of a seven-storey extension of the shopping centre when it was revealed the developers only had permission to construct a four-storey building.

The demolition left a roofless four-storey structure. Over the years, rain turned the ground floor of the mall into a pond – an ideal breeding ground for mosquitoes.

People living near the shopping centre released fish into the pond to take care of the mosquito problem.

Veera Watcharagoneyotine, director of a fishery, estimated there were about 3,000 fish in the shopping centre, mostly mango fish, catfish and striped catfish.
