Dusit Maha Prasat
Being oldest part of the Grand Palace, Dusit Maha Prasat Throne Hall is the front of the Phra Maha Prasat group of buildings, with residential buildings being behind. Only Throne Hall is open for visitors and should be a must-visit part of every Bangkok holiday, alongside the rest of the Grand Palace complex. With its high roof on which top is the tall spire, the Hall represents traditional Thai architecture. From the death of King Rama I until now, the Hall is being used as a lying-in-state for members of the royal family during an official mourning period.
