Located within the Dusit Palace, this former reception hall now serves the role of a museum and occassionally is used for specific state events. Architects Annibale Riigotti and Mario Tamagno designed this in Neo Classic and Italian Renaissance style.

The hall is a 2-storey construction featuring a large dome right in the middle, surrounded by 6 smaller domes. Paintings by Carlo Riguli and Galileo Chini cover the walls and domes, depicting Chakri Dynasty’s history. The People’s Party used the building as their headquarters during the 1932 revolution.

Ananda Samakhom Throne Hall was constructed under the order of King Rama V but its completion was marked under the reign of his successor King Rama VI. It was served as the first parliament of Thailand post the 1932 coup. Presently, it is used to court royal occasions, state council meetings and visiting dignitaries.

An Impressive Structure

Ananda Samakhom Throne Hall is an impressive palace made of white marble. It is situated at one end of Royal Plaza at Dusit. Inside the palace, the royal throne is placed under beautiful central dome. The central dome and the walls of six other domes are lined by frescoes that depict monarchs of Chakri Dynasty.

The upper floor has a wide hall that is decorated with embossed floral and Roman patterns showing baroque and renaissance art. Outside the hall, paved plaza and the trim gardens that also adjoin Vimanmek Mansion are great locations to have memorable view of the landscape and the royal structures. To the public, Ananda Samakhom Throne Hall serves as a museum. It hosts permanent exhibition of work of Thai national artists and showcases arts and crafts of students of Chitralada Vocational Centre. Guided tours can be hired every half an hour from 9:30 in the morning to 3:30 in the afternoon daily, except for Monday.
