Why The Ananda Samakhom Throne Hall is special ?

Throne Hall is a very unique and Western styled reception hall within Dusit Palace. The Palace grounds are large and are monitored closely by a huge team of personnel that make sure you follow instructions. Upon entry to the grounds you are required to put all photographic equipment in a locker which is staffed and monitored. Before entering the buildings you walk through an airport type metal detector and are scanned by personnel who confiscate cameras and/or telephones. You are also patted down to see what other contraband you may have.



What to explore at The Ananda Samakhom Throne Hall?

Arts of the Kingdom exhibition

The Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall houses the permanent “the Arts of the Kingdom” exhibition, where various kinds of hand made traditional Thai crafts are on display made by people working for the SUPPORT foundation.

The SUPPORT foundation was initiated more than 40 years ago by the Queen of Thailand, Her Majesty Queen Sirikit. It aims to give people in rural areas the skills that provides additional income and also to preserve the Thai traditional handicraft skills and Thai cultural heritage.

A wide range of arts and craft items from silk, cotton, carved wood, gold and silver can be seen here, including several rare and unique masterpieces, like the magnificent Suphannapetra golden junk.

At the end of the exhibition there is a souvenir shop with several hand made items for sale.

For me, the hall itself was the least interesting part of the visit, being an Italinate fantasy plonked in the middle of Bangkok. The various 'treasures' (thrones, boats, jewellery, etc) on the other hand were very interesting and worth spending at lest a couple of hours. I was impressed that most of these pieces were created within the past few decades- Thai craftsmanship is obviously thriving, thanks in part to royal patronage. I could have spent an hour just looking at the carve wooden screen (i forget what level this was). I was mesmerized by the tableaux it deepicted, especiallly the elephants and sundry fantasy creatures picking lotus blossoms in the water. The carved wooden dolls also were remarkable for the degree os tenderness and whimsy that obviously went into their creation. One of the highlights of Bangkok if you are 'artistically' inclined.

The art works and the beauty of the inside of the building were dazzling! I found it very beautiful! The workmanship of the displayed articles rivaled and often surpassed anything I have seen before. The delicate spun gold included in the pieces was pure art and must have been done by master craftsmen! The soaring ceilings displayed painted renditions of historical events. There were tapestries unlike anything I have ever seen. Wonderful! I would highly recommend this place to those that love beautiful craftsmanship. Of course, walking around outside is difficult in the Thailand heat! My only complaint was the tight security, although I cannot blame them with such valuable works of art. We were not allowed to bring or use cameras. Everything, I mean everything had to be left in lockers. And, I would gladly have purchased mementos in the gift shop, but it was a seriously awful gift shop!

The building is very nice and there was a nice exhibition at the Throne Hall, which was interesting.However considerable part of the artifacts prepared not so long ago (within 20-30 year), and the lot of gold was too much for us... For us the Vimanmek Mansion gave much better experience.It is prohibited to bring inside any photo camera, bag, mobile phone. You have to leave it at the locker area. We took with us our wallets and passports only. You have to wear long trousers and not too short shirts.The Grand Palace ticket includes the Throne Hall and the Vimanmek Mansion tickets as well, and these tickets valid for 7 days after purchasing the Grand Palace ticket.

The palace was pretty spectacular. A lot of gold and such inside and the architecture of the building was sweet.
