This consists of three main buildings, namely :

(1) the Audience Hall of Amarin Winitchai, where ceremonies of the Court usually take place in front of the throne surmounted by its canopy of nine tiers of white cloth and backed by a boat shaped altar fronting the door leading in to the inner chambers.

(2) Paisal Taksin Hall where the coronation of a monarch takes place with its coronation chair and the octagonal seat where the monarch receives the people's invitation to rule; and in the centre between the seats an altar containing the symbolised figure of Siam, by the name of "Phra Syam Thewathirat" or shortly "Phra Syam" traditionally invoked for the good weal of the state.
