Grand Palace Background
The Grand Palace, locally known as Phra Borom Maha Ratcha Wang, has a rich history. The Palace was built for the Kings of Siam in 1782 as their residence. The royal family, the court of the king, and government were based on the Grand Palace until 1925. Today, it is still often used for important occasions including royal events and state gatherings every year. Located in Thailand’s capital city Bangkok, the Grand Palace is the center of attraction for international and local tourists.
Construction began in 1782 when the King Phutthayotfa Chulalok (Rama I) moved the capital city from Thonburi to Bangkok. Extensive buildings and structures were added to the Grand Palace over time, including a strong border wall. The Palace is roughly rectangular with a total area of 218,400 square meters. It is positioned on the banks of the Chao Phraya River at the center of Rattanakosin Island, in the Phra Nakhon District.
As you can see from the Grand Palais Map, the Palace is not a single structure but instead an assortment of buildings, gardens, and temples. Its asymmetry is due to its natural growth. The Palace grounds can be categorized into 4 sections:
- Temple of the Emerald Buddha
- Outer Court
- Middle Court
- Inner Court
Every court has several public buildings. Some portions of the Grand Palace are open for public as a museum, but some portions are used to organize royal events and public events.
Popular buildings in these courts include the Phra Maha Monthien, Phra Thinang Amarin Winitchai, Phra Thinang Phaisan Thaksin, Phra Thinang Chakraphat Phiman, Phra Thinang Racharuedee and Ho Suralai Phiman, and Ho Phra That Monthien. You can check all these locations, and their details, on the Grand Palace Map Bangkok. This map will get you where you want to go!
