Royal Crematorium to open to the public next week for one month

Members of the public will have the opportunity to view the ornately decorated Royal Crematorium of his late beloved Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej starting on November 2 until November 30.

The Royal Crematorium is apparently meant to depict heaven and is an artist’s interpretation of Mount Meru, which is a sacred mountain in Buddhism and Hinduism mythology.

The crematorium itself took over eight months to be built.

Those visiting the crematorium will also get to view an exhibit featuring a look at the late king’s personal biography’s as well as projects he spearheaded across the kingdom.

After the month-long viewing period the structure will be taken apart and dismantled.

The cremation grounds will be open to the public from 7am until 10pm each day.

Viewing spots will run hourly where a maximum of 5,000 people will be permitted to enter where they will be free to explore the grounds.

Visitors are required to dress respectfully no shorts or sleeveless tops will be permitted.
There will be evening performances of cultural shows from 6pm until 10pm.

There will be five entrances, however non Thai nationals must use the entrance closest to the Ministry of Defence.

There will be free public transport running from various city locations to the crematorium and times and locations will be posted online in the coming days.
