This reception hall was built in the early 1900s and is part of the vast complex called Dusit Palace. Construction began under HM King Chulalongkorn, but he did not live to see the marble structure completed.
These days Throne Hall, which is across the street from Dusit Zoo on U-Thong Nai Road, houses dazzlingly ornate palanquins and other royal regalia. There’s also an exhibit of silk embroideries, a craft encouraged and supported by the Queen.
After all the intricacy so typical of traditional Thai art and design, visitors can take some air in the garden. The equestrian statue of the enormously popular Rama V can be seen to the south. The Victorian-era king is worshipped by many, so people come to offer jasmine garlands and light incense.
