Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall

Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall

The Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall is a striking example of European design located in Dusit Park in Bangkok. It was commissioned by King Rama V in 1906 and built by royal architects Mario Tamagno and Annibale Rigotti in the Neo-Classical style.

This dome of the roof is typical of European structures at the time. Even the beautiful white marble was imported from Carrara in Italy.
