The Grand Palace

QR code 

The Grand Palace was built in 1782 when King Rama I succeeded to the throne and Bangkok was founded as the capital of Thailand. 

Within this compound are several significant cultural Icons.   To build the city walls and public buildings, hundreds of boats carried bricks and rubble from the ruins of Ayutthaya. The most important structure of the new city at that time (and now) was the Grand Palace (1), where King Rama I took residence. 
 
Structures built alongside the Grand Palace were temples and other sites for worship, as well as official buildings. As the Royal Chapel, the Temple of the Emerald Buddha or Wat Phra Kaeo (2) occupies one corner of the Grand Palace complex. It houses the Emerald Buddha, the most revered Buddha image in Thailand. There is a strict dress code for visitors to the Grand Palace and the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, Thailand’s most sacred site.

More:-
Since the founding of Bangkok, the Grand Palace has been the major architectural symbol of the Thai Royal Family. For about 150 years, the Grand Palace was not only the official residence of the King but also the entire administrative seat of government. In the reign of King Rama V, the royal residence of the kings was relocated to Dusit Palace. Now the grand palace hosts royal ceremonies and state receptions.

The Grand Palace is a complex of buildings at the heart of Bangkok, Thailand. The palace has been the official residence of the Kings of Siam (and later Thailand) since 1782. The king, his court and his royal government were based on the grounds of the palace until 1925. The present monarch, King Bhumibol Adulyadej (Rama IX), currently resides at Chitralada Palace, but the Grand Palace is still used for official events. Several royal ceremonies and state functions are held within the walls of the palace every year. The palace is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Thailand
The architectural plan is almost identical to that of the Royal Palace in the former capital of Ayuthaya. In the same compound located the royal chapel or Wat Phra Kaew.
