Abhisek Dusit Throne Hall information
This East-meets-West royal building was built by King Chulalongkorn, the first Thai monarch to visit Europe. Visions of his travels must still have been swimming in his head when he commissioned the throne hall, a stunning, intricate building which, despite its Western influences, has a distinctly Thai exterior.
Because this is royal property, visitors are required to cover up. Long pants or long skirts, shirts with sleeves and closed-toe footwear will be provided if you don't happen to have any in your rucksack.
