Situated within the same compound walls in the heart of the city, these two venues are the most frequently by foreigner travelers and native resident alike. The Grand Palace, besides being famous for the uniquely impressive buildings its comprises, is also the site chosen by the first monarch of the Chakri Dynasty, King Rama I (1782-1809), to build his residence. Just outside the Wat Pra Kaew complex is the most beautiful and important temple in Thailand. Here the visitors can view, carved from a single block of jasper, the highly revered Buddha Image of Pra Kaew Morakot. Open daily from 8.30 a.m. to 11.30 a.m. and from 1.00 p.m. till 3.30 p.m.
