  Anantasamakhom Throne Hall

This area of the city is well worth paying a visit to. Here you find Vimanmek Museum and the Anantasamakhom Throne Hall. The Throne hall is a two storey Marble building, built in an Italian Renaissance and Neo Classic style of architecture. In 1932, it was used as headquarters for the People's party during the 4days of the revolution. After that, it was used as Parliament House until 1974, when a new Parliament House was built. Entry is included in your Grand Palace admission ticket. It is a very imposing building. Nearby is the Dusit Zoo which is very busy on weekends. Just across the road on Sri Ayutthaya road, is Wat Benchamabophit (Marble Temple)

Address: cnr of Ratchasrima Road & Sri Ayutthaya Road

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
