The Palace and Us

It was quite a walk from the main entrance to the inner Palace complex. If only the day wasn't too hot, the palace visit would have been a lot more pleasing.

However, since we were already there, we continued with the walking tour. The place was huge!! And it's architecture was something that could make you gasp!

For just about 150 years, Bangkok's Grand Palace was not only the home of the King and his court, but also the entire administrative seat of government.

Intricate designs and laborious love for the King

Elephants are sacred animals to the Thais.

These "ladies" glitter as the sun shines on them.

Some buildings are in white

some sparkle in gold :)

Tiles too were given really special attention 

The three of US :)

Nothing but the finest architecture

Decoratives in the abundance.

Next: Palace Guards
