The Royal Palace, Bangkok Thailand

The Royal Palace in Bangkok is a shrine to an individual, a shrine to a dynasty and a shrine to a religion.  These photographs are a small sampling of the art and architecture. 


The Emerald Buddha can only be photographed from outside the shrine that houses it; so, it is seen here from quite a distance.

Some buildings have their own special guardians.

I like to look at the details.

Often, guardians are built into the architecture.

A few visitors are trying to help.

These columns support the roof over an immense ancient fresco.

These are a few details of the fresco.

The beauty of the inlay work caught my attention.

I was intrigued by these windows.
