When Siam restored law and order after the fall of Ayutthaya (the previous capital of Siam), the monarch lived in Thonburi which is on the west side of the Chaophraya river. King Rama I, on ascending the throne, moved the centre of administration to this side of the Chao Phraya river and, after erecting public monuments such as fortifications and monasteries, built a palace to serve not only as his residence but also as his offices--the various ministries, only one of which remains in the palace.
This palace came to be known as the Grand Palace, in which the earliest edifices contemporary with the foundation of Bangkok were the two groups of residences named the Dusit Maha Prasat and the Phra Maha Monthian.
