The Arts of the Kingdom Come to Life

The Queen Sirikit Institute ‘Arts of the Kingdom Museum’ reveals the true extent of ornate Thai artistry and is home to a number of sacred masterpieces such as the Busabok Throne (a small, ceremonial, open-sided pavilion for the king or sacred objects such as Buddha images or Tipitaka scriptures). The collection is held at Ananta Samagon Throne Hall, a former reception hall within Dusit Palace in Bangkok. The majestic building is built in Italian Renaissance and Neo Classic style. Now serving primarily as a museum, the residence is still used time to time for special state occasions.
