Abhisek Dusit Throne Hall

Notable Building in Thewet & Dusit

Originally built as a throne hall for Rama V in 1904, the Abhisek Dusit Throne Hall is typical of the finer architecture of the era. Victorian-influenced gingerbread architecture and Moorish porticoes blend to create a striking and distinctly Thai exterior. The hall houses an excellent display of regional handiwork crafted by members of the Promotion of Supplementary Occupations & Related Techniques (Support) foundation, a charity organisation sponsored by Queen Sirikit. The hall was closed for renovations when we visited.
