The Grand Palace Bangkok

Grand Palace (Bangkok)

Chakri Maha Prasat in the Grand Royal Palace of BangkokThe Grand Palace was the official residence of the kings of Siam (now Thailand) In Bangkok Since the end of the 18th Century to the mid-20th Century. After the death of the King Ananda Mahidol (Rama VIII) In 1946, the Palace of King Borom-Phiman Bhumibol Adulyadej (Rama IX). the relocation of the residence in the Chitralada Palace.


Only 15 years after the Burmans, the old capital Ayutthaya were destroyed was the recently crowned King Phra Phuttayodfa Chulaloke to allow them to resurrect the glory of the Siamese empire again. He decided on 6 May 1782 the foundation stone for a new palace on the eastern bank of the Maenam Chao Phraya to be set. It has staked a district that's north of the then existing Potharam Wat (Wat Phra Chetuphon today, in short: Wat Pho) And to the south was the then Wat Salak (now Wat Mahathat). The eastern bank originally was very marshy, so that it first had to be drained. Even at the time of King Taksin was dug to a narrow channel, the Khlong Lord ( "straw-channel"). There, it was planned where the new palace, already lived a community of wealthy Chinese merchants, which probably supported the then Potharam Wat. They were kindly asked "to relocate their businesses, in the" Gardens ", a then unsettled area outside the city, which is now known as" Sampeng. Then, the first temporary buildings could be built the new palace of wood and fabric leaves.

The 10th June 1782 was chosen as auspicious date on which the king of the ancient palace of King Taksin, the Phra Raja Wang Derm, who in Thonburi adjacent to the current Wat Arun was to take on ceremonial crossing the river to his new place.

The entire area was heavily fortified, first by a wooden Palisade surrounded. Later she was replaced by a high brick wall 1.9 kilometers long, which should shield the palace to the outside. The much-needed building materials like bricks for example, were brought by ship from the ruined palace at Ayutthaya. The first phase was completed in 1785, so that the Palace was officially inaugurated in a grand ceremony.

The entire system of the old royal palace, followed surprisingly closely the plan of the short time before destroying Wang Luang (King's Palace Ayutthaya). The complex consists of an approximately 2.6-square-mile area on the east bank of the Chao Phraya River near the Royal Palace, the Sanam Luang. Various buildings and facilities are arranged, the most important being the Wat Phra Kaeo, The Temple of the Emerald Buddha is.

The current buildings on the site are the result of ongoing construction activity since 1782, since that time the building was rebuilt, enlarged, rebuilt, renovated or demolished to make room for new plants. The first phase of the construction activity was at the enthronement of King Puttha Yotfa Chulaloke (Rama I.) Completed and on 13 June 2006 was inaugurated the newest building, the Borommaratchasathit Maholan Throne Hall

The present palace consists of four parts, the Outer court, The Central courtyard, The Inner courtyard and Wat Phra Kaeo, Each of the parts were functionally suited to those who lived or worked there. The Inner Court in the northern part of the palace, in which only women were admitted, is surrounded by a high wall. At the entrances to this area were female guards. The Outer Court is located in the southern part, where the ministries were settled, with which the king had to do often, the treasury and the royal guards.

The central courtyard is the most impressive part of the palace. This also consists of four complexes: the so-called first group of buildings, the complex around the Chakri Maha Prasat, The group around the Dusit Palace and the group around the Borom Phiman Hall.

The complex of the palace is modeled on the old royal palace at Ayutthaya, the short time before the planning of the palace in Bangkok had been destroyed by the Burmese.
