The Grand Palace

Grand Palace or Phra Borom Maha Ratcha Wang is a palace compound as the official residence of the King of Siam from 1782 to 1925 when King Bhumibol Adulyadej (Rama IX) as King of Thailand chose to stay at Chitralada Royal Villa and King Vajiralongkorn (Rama X) at Amphorn Sathan Residential Hall, but the Grand Palace is still used for official events.

Construction of the Grand Palace began on May 6, 1782 by order of King Phutthayotfa Chulalok (Rama I) as the founder of the Chakri Dynasty while moving the capital from Thonburi to Bangkok. His successors added many structures, especially during the reign of King Chulalongkorn (Rama V).

In 1925, the king, the royal family and the government ceased to stay in the palace permanently and had moved to another residence and the abolition of an absolute monarchy system in 1932 where all government agencies really had to move out of the palace.

The rectangular palace complex is on the banks of the Chao Phraya River, an area of 218,400 sq meters (2,351,000 sq ft) and surrounded by four walls. The palace consists of many buildings, halls, pavilions that surround the open lawn, gardens and courtyards.

The asymmetrical and eclectic style is caused by organic development with the addition and rebuild done by kings reigning successively for 200 years of history. The Grand Palace is currently partly open to the public as a museum, but remains a working palace with several royal offices.

King Phutthayotfa Chulalok (Rama I) built the Grand Palace after seizing power from King Taksin of Thonburi and intends to build a new capital for the Chakri dynasty. The new capital turned into an artificial island when a canal was dug along the east side. This location was previously occupied by a Chinese community that Raja Rama had ordered to move to the south.

The palace was originally built entirely of wood due to a lack of cost. On June 13, the king held a shortened coronation ceremony, thus becoming the first king of the new Rotanacosin Kingdom. Over the next few years the king began to replace wooden structures with stones. The Grand Palace is Thai palace built by King Phutthayotfa Chulalok in 1782
