Chakri Maha Prasat Palace in Bangkok

The Chakri Maha Prasat Palace is one of the most impressive and unique of the many buildings in the Grand Palace in Bangkok. The Chakri Maha Prasat Palace occupies a central position in the Middle Court of the Grand Palace and is still used on occasion for important state functions such as when the King of Thailand meets important foreign dignitaries. Tourists are not granted entry inside the upper levels of the palace, but they are permitted to enter into the lower level on weekdays where there are displays of antique weapons previously used by the Royal Guards stationed at the Grand Palace.

The Chakri Maha Prasat Palace was constructed between 1876 and 1882, with the completion date coinciding with the 100 year anniversary of the start of the Chakri Dynasty which is the current royal dynasty of Thailand. Architecturally the Chakri Maha Prasat Palace is different to what had previously been built in the Grand Palace compound. The lower part of the building is styled like an European building and is topped by a Thai style roof. The building was created on the order of the reigning King Rama V who was notable for his modern international outlook. The building is seen by some commentators as being symbolic of King Rama V’s style of leadership which saw the introduction of Western political, economic, social and scientific ideas within the context of Thailand’s own distinctive social and cultural traditions. The Chakri Maha Prasat Palace is notable, for example, for being the first building in Thailand which had an electrical supply installed within the structure. In this sense, and many others, Thailand’s monarchy was leading the way in the country’s development during this period of history and this gives the Chakri Maha Prasat Palace a symbolic significance.
