Many big cities of the world have old and modern areas, like Delhi and New Delhi; old London and New London. In the same way, the city of Bangkok too has two parts or two capitals on its metropolitan area.

One is the historically important Rattanakosin, which was the fourth Thai Kingdom founded by king Buddha Yodfa. The other part is the modern Bangkok. Bangkok is dotted with royal palaces some of which are still occupied by the descendents of the royal family, some of them have been turned into government buildings and educational institutions, while the rest are thrown open to the tourists.
