The Anceint palace was built in King Borom Trilokkanath in Ayudhaya period . The palace separated to 3 parts ; front area was for officer ,center was for pavilions and halls and inner was living area. All area surround with a big wall and forts which can see the Grand Palace as example. All buildings inside built in different periods but you can just see a ruins for now(though there ?re a new one pavilion which built in King Rama V of Bangkok period for ceremony to the past Kings. ). The ruin of pavilions such as:
