The Grand Palace

The most visited attraction in Bangkok.  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.
