Grand Palace

The Grand Palace in Bangkok used to be the residence of royalty, but parts of it have become open to public.

Many statues are placed around the complex of buildings.

Efforts to adjust fading areas of the structures damaged by weathering are underway.

Murals are painted on the walls of some of the buildings. They depict the Ramakien, the Thai version of the Indian epic Ramayana.
