Bangkok – The magnificence of the Royal Palace

Bangkok – The magnificence of the Royal Palace

Enjoy this comprehensive video on the Bangkok Grand Palace by Fantasia Asia

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

Bangkok has not always been called Bangkok. The Thai capital’s first name was Rattanakosin, which means “the city of the jewel” This refers to a small statue of the Emerald Buddha located inside the Royal Palace, which is jealously guarded in Wat Phra Kaew, the most sacred temple in Thailand. Today’s video takes you for a walk right inside the Royal Palace, among its allegorical figures, its gold, and its pagodas. You will get a taste of that almost mystical atmosphere where the smell of incense lit by the faithful mixes with colours and shapes that make you dive into that dreamy image of the Orient that we have often imagined. And I can assure you that imagination is not that far from reality here. This is a compulsory view for those who are new to the capital of the Kingdom of Thailand.
