Dusit Maha Prasat Palace in the Grand Palace, Bangkok

Dusit Maha Prasat Palace in the Grand Palace, Bangkok
In the early Rattanakosin era, the Dusit Maha Prasat Palace was an audience hall, where affairs of the state were con duct ed and royal ceremonies performed. The palace was built by King Rama I in 1806 A.D. The struc ture is a cruciform build ing with large high roofs. In the beginning, the palace was intended to be as large as the Suriyat Amarin Palace of Ayutthaya.
The Palace in the Grand Palace is now the only remaining example of the traditional Thai palace. Unfortunately, renovated in the reign of King Rama III, the building left no trace of the original workmanship initiated in the first reign.
The Grand Palace at Muang Boran, however, is not intended to model after the same palace as it stands today. By pains taking research and study of old photos and contemporary documents, Muang Boran has succeeded in recreating the original appearance of the palace.
