Since the founding of Bangkok as the Nations capital by King Rama I, in 1782, The Grand Palace has been the major architectural symbol of The Thai Royal Family. The original living quarters were temporary and made of wood and thatch and the walls surrounding the palace were made of wood palisades.

Except for the Thai King, no other person is allowed to touch the statue. The King changes the rope of the statue three times a year, corresponding to the summer, rainy and cool seasons, this important ritual performed to usher good fortune to the country.
 
Last Wat (temple) to pay a visit  is Wat Benchamabophit also nown to foreigners as The Marble Temple as its exterior is clad in white Carrara marble. The main Ubosoth,  (ordient hall) is truly a beautiful architectural masterpiece. The interior crossbeams are decorated with lacquer and gold. The walls of the spacious inner courtyard are lined with a large collection of bronze Buddha images. Inside the main hall it houses the replica of  Phra Phuttachinarat, Thailand's most beautiful Buddha.
