If there is one must-see sight that no visit to Bangkok would be complete without, it's the dazzling, spectacular Grand Palace which is undoubtedly the city's most famous landmark. The Grand Palace was built in 1782 and for 150 years it was the home of the Thai King, the Royal court and the administrative seat of government.
The Grand Palace of Bangkok continues to have visitors in awe with its beautiful architecture and intricate detail which is a proud salute to the creativity and craftsmanship of Thai people. Within its walls it has also housed Thai war ministry, state departments, and even the Thai mint. Today the complex remains the spiritual heart of the Thai Kingdom.
