Construction of huge funerary complex for king Rama IX starts in Bangkok

Huge funerary complex more than 50 meters high will be built in the heart of Bangkok, the capital and most populous city of Thailand, to bid farewell to king Bhumibol Adulyadej (Rama IX). A groundbreaking ceremony was held in the metropolitan area of Sanam Luang.

According to Buddhist tradition, Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha showered flower petals on the central pile of the future structure, and then hung up a flower necklace on it.

As it was reported in the Department of Fine Arts responsible for the construction of a funerary complex, its building is planned to be completed by the end of September.

Monarch crematorium will present a structure with several tiers made of sandalwood, resembling a Buddhist temple. Its design is “based on the cosmology of Buddhism and the idea that the Thai kings were of divine origin,” the Department said.
