The Grand Palace, the residence of royals for several generations, is the perfect place to begin your historical tour in Bangkok. It houses one of the holiest Buddhist temples, Wat Phra Kaew, built in the year 1782. The Grand Palace stands among the top tourist attractions in Bangkok, Thailand, showcasing the rich history of Bangkok.
A former official residence of the monarchy of Thailand, the Palace is structured in a rectangular space. Often mistaken for a single structure, the Grand Palace is a group of numerous buildings, halls, pavilion sets, grounds, lawns, and courtyards. While being the official ceremonial residence of the monarch of Thailand, the Palace is also used for many official ceremonies and state functions, amplifying its allure.
Apart from marvelling at the eclectic and unique architectural style of this majestic complex, visitors can also find the exquisite Temple of the Emerald Buddha, the most sacred Buddhist Thai temple. Along with a public museum amidst displayed historic structures of the nation, this attraction showcases the evolution of the rich culture and heritage of Thailand dating back to the 18th century.
