The Dusit Maha Prasat Palace ( The Grand Palace ) pictured right.
In the early Rattanakosin era the Palace was a Audience hall where affairs of the
state were conducted & Royal Ceremonies performed. The Palace was built by King Rama
1 in 1806 AD. The structure is a cruciform building with large high roofs. The Dusit
Maha Prasat Palace in the Grand Palace is now the only remaining example of the traditional
Thai palace left in Thailand.
The guilded lacquer work among the windows chronicle the yearly succession of state
ceremonies which were recorded by King Rama V. More precisely , the murals above
the windows depict events of a Governmental, Religious, Military & diplomatic nature
& the traditional Thai way of life
