The Royal Thai Government has scheduled the Royal Cremation of the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej, who passed away on October 13th last year, to be held during 25-29 October, 2017, at Sanam Luang Ceremonial Ground in Bangkok. The actual royal cremation will take place on 26 October, which has been declared a national public holiday to allow the public to take part in the important event.

Throughout 70 years of his reign, the late king, who was deeply loved and revered, played a very important role in the development of the livelihood of people.

The government also announced that a post-royal cremation exhibition be held 1-30 November 2017.
