The Grand Royal Palace of Bangkok

The Grand Palace, called Phra Borom Maha Ratcha Wang is located beside Emerald pogada, Bangkok Thailand. The Grand Palace is a complex of buildings and 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.

The tower of gold began construction on 6 May 1782. The plan of the Grand Palace followed closely that of the old palace in Ayutthaya. The Palace is rectangular shaped, with the western side next to a river and the royal temple situated to the east side, with all structures facing north. The palace itself is divided into three quarters: the outer quarters, the middle quarters and the inner quarters.
