grand_palace_bangkokNever miss a chance to visit the famous Grand Palace in Bangkok; it’s really worth visiting the Palace to experience the traditional architectural skills with a royal touch. Phra Borom Maha Ratcha Wang (Grand Palace), is a complex of buildings in Bangkok, Thailand. It served as the official residence of the Kings of Thailand from the 18th century onwards. Construction of the Palace began in 1782, during the reign of King Rama I, when he moved the capital across the river from Thonburi to Bangkok. The Palace has been constantly expanded and many additional structures were added over time.

Grand Palace is made up of numerous buildings, halls, pavilions set around open lawns, gardens and courtyards. Its asymmetry and eclectic styles are due to its organic development, with additions and rebuilding being made by successive reigning kings over 200 years of history.
