The Phra Racha Wang Derm or Thon Buri Palace is offering free admission from 15 to 28 December 2018 to commemorate King Taksin The Great on the occasion of the 250th anniversary of the establishment of Krung Thonburi Sri Mahasamut.
The Palace was built during the reign of King Taksin The Great as a royal residence, at the time Thonburi was the capital. Its location was strategically significant, at the mouth of the canal and with a fort nearby looking out over the surrounding area that was renovated and renamed Wichai Prasit Fort. The palace is also where many Thai kings were born, such as King Nangklao, King Mongkut and King Pinklao.
Important historical areas inside the Phra Racha Wang Derm or Thon Buri Palace include the throne hall, the throne room, the double palace, the royal palace, the shrine of the king and the greenhouse.
