Asia: Thailand

Grand Palace



Subsidiary Buildings

 


To the North of the terrace, on the level ground, these are three interesting buildings, named:

Scripture Library, the West facade of which it is said to be the finest in Bangkok;

The Gabled Wiharn, decorated with tiles and porcelain;

The Mausoleum of Royal Family, where are kept the crematory relics of a number of members of Royal Family.

Behibd Assembly Hall, on the West side, are two small chapels, housing effigies of Buddha, in Northerly one of which are murals accredited to the famous painter "Khura In Khong" of the fourth reign period.

The murals have been so toned down, with age that they look all the more aesthetic.
