Royal Palace of Bangkok
The Royal Palace of Bangkok is a large architectural complex formed by a group of buildings that served as the royal seat from the eighteenth century until the mid-twentieth century.
The building of the palace began in the year 1792 during the reign of Rama I. Its name in Thai is Phra Borom Maha Ratcha Wang.
The most important place of the palace is the Wat Phra Kaew temple, which houses the Emerald Buddha, which, carved in jade in the fifteenth century and only 45 centimeters high, is the most valuable and revered of Thailand.
It is necessary to warn that the entrance to the Royal Palace is not allowed with shorts or sleeveless shirts. If you do not wear proper clothes at the door you will be given free of charge.
On the other hand, you must know that to access any room where the image of Buddha is present is necessary to take off. If you are scrupulous do not forget to wear socks.
If in the vicinity of the temple someone tells you that the Royal Palace is closed for any reason, you should not listen to them since their objective is to offer us other alternative tours in tuktuk, boat trips or other activities. Always check what you say for yourselves.
