The Grand Palace | Bangkok, Thailand

The Grand Palace complex was established in 1782 and it houses not only the royal residences and throne halls, but also a number of government offices as well as the renowned Temple of the Emerald Buddha.

In November last year (2003), I had the privilege to go to Bangkok and to visit the Grand Palace. Here's some pictures I took of this imposing palace complex.......enjoy......
