The palace compound

The Central Court was the king’s residence. It entails halls to hold state business. The king’s royal consorts and daughter lived in the Inner Court, this was like a miniature village with women and children. The area is still closed off to the public. The monument is located a short drive away from Emporium Suites by Chatrium and many a 5-star Bangkok hotel.

Wat Phra Kaew

The Temple of the Emerald Buddha lies deep within the palace. Held in the temple is an emerald statue of Buddha that is greatly adored by Buddhists in Thailand. The ceremonial robes on the Buddha are changed by the king according to the seasons.

Royal reception halls

The reception hall known as the Chakri Maha Prasat is used for occasions like coronations today. This hall holds the antique throne in addition to the throne that is used currently. Next is the Dusit Hall which is unrivalled in architecture and acts as a museum too.

Things to remember

The Grand Palace in which the Temple of the Emerald Buddha is built is considered a sacred place by the locals. Therefore, is essential that you dress appropriately, there is a booth at the entrance that will provide clothing if necessary.
