The Phya Thai Palace or Royal Phya Thai Palace is located on the banks of the Samsen Canal on Rajavithee Road in the Ratchathewi district of Bangkok. King Rama V bestowed on it the royal name of the Royal Residence of the Phya Thai or the Phya Thai Palace, with Phya Thai meaning Lord of the Thais, during his reign and so it was built with this bearing on design. King Rama VII ordered the palace be converted into an international hotel, an enterprise which ended five years later. The Phya Thai Palace then became the location of the first Thai radio broadcast station. Later, after a change of government the palace became a clinic for the Royal Thai Army and has since changed its name to the Phramongkutklao Hospital.
