King Rama I restored the social and political system of the Ayutthaya Period, even copying that city's layout and architecture in Rattanakosin. For example, the Grand Palace's building plan closely resembled that of the Grand Palace in Ayutthaya. Even the bricks from the ruins in Ayutthaya were moved downstream to be incorporated into the new capital's grand scheme.
