The elegance of the Grand Palace is indefinable in words. The home of the Thai king was built in the year 1782 and has been maintained as the most regal monument over the past 150 years. This royal palace is not only the residence of the King of Thailand, but it also incorporates the administrative seat of the government of Thailand and the royal court. I was really awestruck at the enchanting architecture and such fine and detailed work of the Thai craftsmen. No doubt, the country is proud of its heritage and creativity. In the previous years the state departments, the Thai war ministry and the mint as well were placed within the walls of this palace.
