Its Royal Court has two parts: the Outer Court, which was used by the King to preside over the government, and the Inner Court, where women and young boys resided. The Boromabiman and Amarinda Halls, King Rama I’s residence, can also be found in the Grand Palace.

Another must-see tourist spot is the Wat Phra Kaew or the Temple of the Emerald Buddha inside the Grand Palace complex. Wat Phra¬†Kaew is Thailand’s most sacred site and the highest Buddhist temple. Buddhists and the Thai people, in general, give reverence to The Emerald Buddha, which dates back to the 14th century. Visiting tourists must adhere to a strict and modest dress code to show respect to the Buddha.
