Notes on the Geography of Thailand: Bangkok: Photo 13

world pictures Thailand: Bangkok

Strong as China's influence was, Europe's was stronger still.  One indicator is royal architecture, because with the partial exception of the Grand Palace all of Bangkok's many royal palaces are basically European.  Here's one entrance to the Dusit Palace of 1900. Behind the arch are many separate palaces, including the Phra Thinang Anantha Samakhom, a throne hall designed by Italian architects, executed in Carrara marble, and with an interior taken directly from St. Peters. (For more on this, see Palaces of Bangkok by Naengnoi Suksri, 1996)
