    Even though it is basically an empty building with a chair in the middle of it, it is worth seeing. A huge building, nice paintings and royal symbols all over the walls, no pictures and shoes allowed inside !!!!
    Takes no more than 10 minutes to go thru it, but worth it !!!!

    Photo's allowed only of the outside !!!!

    The Abhisek Dusik Throne Hall is one of the distinctive buildings in Dusit Palace. It is located on the north exit of The Ananta Samakorn Throne Hall, facing a big green garden. This could be the only Moorish style architectural building in the Palace with square structure at the main entrance, beautiful curved arches decorated in front corridor , Victorian style motifs known as the bu-nga or floral pattern. This building has a long shape with high ceiling one-storey building.

    It was built by King Chulalongkorn (King Rama V) between 1903-1904. It was used as an audience chamber and reception hall in Dusit Palace before 1915, when the royal reception hall moved to The Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall after 1915.

    Marble Throne Hall

    Built in 1912, Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall is located at the end of Ratchadamnoen Avenue. This building made of marble is said to have a spectacular interior. Exquisite fresco paintings mark the ceiling of the dome of this Throne Hall. For sometime after the 1932 coup that ended the absolute monarchy, Ananta [View More] Samagom Palace housed the Thai parliament.

    We din managed to visit the palace. Just snapped a few shots n left. If I'm not mistaken, the Throne Hall was closed for some ceremony for the King's Sister's death.

    Early 20th century wood and brick structure, part of the Chitlada Palace grounds (combine with a visit to Vimanmek Teak mansion) which houses some excellent regional handicraft and royal 'bits & pieces' which, whilst hardly inspiring, make an interesting additional to the Dusit park visit. It's beautifully located to the rear of the Vimanmek Palace and overlooks the lake.

    This throne hall lies just to the north of the Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall. It was built in 1904 as a throne hall for Rama V and features Victorian-influenced architecture with Moorish porticoes. Today it houses the Thai Handicraft Museum which is worth of visit.
