Royal Grand Palace

Royal Grand Palace

The Royal Grand Palace is a popular Bangkok attraction.

The palace itself is made up of a complex array of smaller buildings, most notably the Wat Mahatat (the Palace Temple) and the Wat Phra Keow (the Royal Chapel), which houses the famous Emerald Buddha sculpted from a single piece of jade, one of the most revered objects in Thailand.
