The Chakri Group (Phra Thinang Chakri Maha Prasat), Bangkok

4.7
The Chakri Group (Phra Thinang Chakri Maha Prasat) exhibits a blend of traditional Thai architecture and 19th-century Western styles. Note how the distinctively European facade is topped with gilded spires and traditional Thai tiled roofs--like a Victorian lady wearing a Thai crown. This colorful melange was the work of two British architects who had been brought from Singapore by King Rama V to design the new throne hall, completed in 1882. Every two hours, you can watch the changing of the King's Guard.
