Description

The centrepiece of stately Ratchadamnoen Avenue, Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall is a white marble palace designed by Italian architects in a neo-classical Renaissance style. Commissioned by King Rama V in 1907 and completed during the reign of King Rama VI, the hall is used for important royal and ceremonial state functions. The interior is stunning, with a central dome, frescoes depicting the monarchs of the Chakri Dynasty, and elaborate Renaissance and Baroque flourishes. The hall also houses the exquisite ‘Arts of the Kingdom’ museum, a remarkable collection of Thai arts and crafts, including rare masterpieces.

Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall welcomes children of all ages. However, as the main attractions are the museum exhibits and the building’s architectural detailing, younger kids, especially toddlers, may get restless. For a break from the interior’s formal atmosphere and hushed tones, there are large, well-kept gardens that allow access to the adjacent Vimanmek Mansion or Dusit Zoo nearby.
