Artist's Description

The Grand Palace (Phra Borom Maha Ratcha Wang) is a complex of buildings at the heart of Bangkok, Thailand. The palace has been the official residence of the Kings of Siam (and later Thailand) since 1782. The Grand Palace is made up of numerous buildings, halls, pavilions set around open lawns, gardens and courtyards.

This is a view of part of the Phra Maha Montien buildings group, which is located roughly at the center of the Middle Court, therefore at the very heart of the Grand Palace itself. The traditional Thai style building group is enclosed by a low wall, as this was once the residential and sleeping abode of kings. It is considered the most important set of throne halls in the entire Grand Palace. All of the buildings within the Maha Montien faces north and are arranged from front to back with the public reception hall being at the front, ceremonial halls in the middle and residential halls at the back, all of them inter-connected to each other.

The Grand Palace is also home to Wat Phra Si Rattana Satsadaram, which is the temple of the Emerald Buddha.
