The Grand Palace in Bangkok was once the official residence of the King of Thailand. Often mistaken for a single structure, it is a group of numerous buildings, halls, pavilion sets, grounds, lawns, and courtyards. It also houses one of the holiest Buddhist temples, Wat Phra Kaew, or Temple of the Emerald Buddha, and the Queen Sirikit Museum of Textile.
While the official ceremonial residence of the monarch of Thailand, the Palace is also used for many official ceremonies and state functions, amplifying its allure. With over 100 buildings in its complex, the Grand Palace is home to some of Thailand’s finest structures. Some of the biggest attractions within the Grand Palace are the Temple of Emerald Buddha, Phra Maha Monthian; the royal ceremony hall, the museum, the Pavilion of Regalia, The Miniature Model of Mount Kailasa and Chakri Maha Prasat; the throne hall. Along with a public museum amidst displayed historic structures of the nation, this attraction showcases the evolution of Thailand's rich culture and heritage dating back to the 18th century.
