The Grand Palace (Thai: พระบรมมหาราชวัง ) is a complex of buildings at the very heart of Bangkok, Thailand. The palace has been the official residence of the Kings of Siam (later Thailand) since 1782. The Grand Palace grounds take up 2.35 million square feet in the middle of the city and include the palace and a number of temples that include the Emerald Buddha, considered to be the most important image of Buddha in Thailand.
Entering the palace grounds require an admission fee (about $15) and the grounds are closed to the public at times for official events.
