The Grand Palace is a complex of buildings at the Old Bangkok, Thailand, also known as Wat Phra Kaew or the Temple of Emerald Buddha, the symbol of the Thai state. Since the founding of Bangkok as the Nations capital by King Rama I, The Grand Palace has been the major architectural symbol of The Thai Royal Family. And I can see why.
I was blown away by the magnificent buildings of the Grand Palace. It’s hard to imagine how much labor had been invested in design and production of the architectural details of this complex. A gazillion custom glass, gold, ceramic, and wood fixtures is installed inside and outside the structures. Every little detail is a piece of art! I was amazed during the entire visit and kept my eyes (and lens) wide open.
