The Grand Palace, This magnificent complex of buildings was begun by King Rama I in 1782, following the pattern used during the Ayutthaya period.  The river formed a moat on one side while the site of Temple of The Emerald Buddha corresponded to that of Wat Phra Si Sanphet, a chief temple of Ayutthaya.  The palace contains a number of halls, residences, pavilions and other historically significant buildings. The Emerald Buddha Temple, or Wat Phra Kaeo, adjoining the Grand Palace is a truly dazzling sight with its glittering spires and vivid statuary.  Not only is this a most sacred site, it also surely qualifies as one of the Wonders of the World.  The Jade Emerald Buddha image stands on an altar 11 meters tall and is protected by a nine-tier umbrella.  The Main Chapel, or “Ubosot”, is elaborately decorated.
