Phra Nakhon District, the Grand Palace, known in Thailand as Phra Borom Maha Ratcha Wan.


At the back of this  hall is yet another living quarter. All are built in  Siamese architecture of perfect proportions. In front of this group is the Disrobing Pavilion ~ Arpornphimok which was reproduced and sent to adorn the Thailand exhibits at the Exhibition of Brussels in 1958.

King Rama I built the Dusit Maha Prasat as a replacement for an earlier wooden building called the Phra Thinang Amarintharapisek Maha Prasat which burned down in 1790. King Rama I intended that the present building should be used for his own Lying in State, as it has the same height and dimensions as the Phra Thinang Suriyamarin at Ayutthaya, the customary hall for the lying in State of Ayutthaya kings.

As you near the exit you will see a large display of weaponry and cannons used over the years housed in a part covered museum. The display is worth a visit  as many are still in very good condition.
