3 The Royal Pantheon at Grand Palace in Bangkok, Thailand

In 1782, King Buddha Yodfa Chulaloke, better known as Rama I, founded the Chakri Dynasty in Bangkok. His direct descendant Rama IX has been the King of Thailand since 1946. A life-size statue of the prior eight monarchs is inside the Royal Pantheon. Also called the Prasat Phra Thep Bidorn, this building with a corn-cob shaped tower (called a prang) is on the east end of Upper Terrace at the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. It is only open to the public on Chakri Day which is celebrated on April 6.
