Grand Palace & The Emerald Buddha

The Grand palace consists of several buildings of highly detail Thai style architecture combined with the style of the Italian Renaissance.
The walled-in city harbours the private Chapel of their Majesties the King and Queen where the sacred image of the Emerald Buddha is Kept.
You'll visit the key attractions around the Grand Palace including Wat Phra Kaew Temple of the Emerald Buddha, Royal Pantheon, Coronation Throne Hall, Royal Reception Hall, and Royal Funeral Hall.

The Grand Palace
The Grand Palace complex was established in 1782 and it houses not only the royal residence and throne halls, but also a number of government offices as well as the renowned Temple of the Emerald Buddha. It covers an area of 218,000 square meters and is surrounded by four walls, 1900 meters in length.

The Royal Monastery of the Emerald Buddha
The Emerald Buddha is in fact carved from a block of green jade and was first discovered in 1434 in a stupa in Chiang Rai. At that time the image was covered with plaster and was thought to be an ordinary Buddha image.
The Emerald Buddha is enshrined on a golden traditional Thai-style throne made of gilded-carved wood, know as a Busabok, in the ordination hall of the royal monastery. The sacred image is clad with one of the three seasonal costumes (summer, rainy season, and winter).

The Upper Terrace
Four main monuments are found on this terrace: a reliquary in the shape of a golden chedi; the Mondop, a repository for Buddhist sacred scriptures inscribed on palm leaves, contained within a beautiful mother-of-pearl inlaid cabinet; a miniature Angkor Wat crafted by the order of King Mongkut(Rama IV); and the Royal Pantheon in which statues of past sovereigns of the ruling Chakri dynasty are enshrined.

The Galleries
The grounds of the Royal Monastery are enclosed by galleries, the walls of which are decorated with scenes from the Ramakien, first painted during the reign of King Rama I and since then restored several times.
