European grandeur

What we say: 4 stars

Planned during the reign of Rama V and completed in 1915, the edifice was constructed in the Italian Renaissance and Neo Classic styles and built of Italian marble and other foreign materials.

Inside the massive European-style hall, exquisite murals are painted on the inside of the dome depicting the reign of the Chakri Dynasty – an interesting juxtaposition of East and West. The first floor of the hall houses a stunning exhibition of Thai fabrics.

The palace makes a good stop when paired with the other sites in Dusit Park. Expect to spend no more than in hour in the palace, but a trip to Dusit Park could easily last half a day or more.
