Update Crematorium the King rama IX

New york Times
https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/08/world/asia/king-bhumibol-thailand-funeral-pyre.html
BANGKOK — On a broad parade ground not far from the Grand Palace, Thai masters are constructing a vision of heaven — an elegant, nine-spired funeral pyre for King Bhumibol Adulyadej that will send his soul into the afterlife later this year.

Built to represent Mount Meru, the center of the Hindu universe, it will embody the highest of Thai arts and architecture, with delicate towers adorned with images from mythology and from the life of the king, who died last October at the age of 88, after 70 years on the throne.

The cremation is planned for Oct. 26, the second of five days of funeral ceremonies. It will be witnessed by 8,000 invited guests as well as millions of Thais around the nation.

The main cremation tower will be 165 feet tall, with a seven-tiered roof and spire, surrounded by eight smaller pavilions representing mountains that surround Mount Meru. Ponds at the pyre’s four corners represent the Cosmic Ocean that flows around it. There will be a small garden with a plot of rice and vegetation commemorating the king’s commitment to rural development.


The pyre’s iconography will portray some of the king’s accomplishments, including dams, wind farms, reservoirs and irrigation projects. It will have paintings of angels and mythical creatures, and hundreds of sculptures, including a statue of the king’s favorite dog, Tongdaeng.


The cremation itself will take place in a confined incinerator within the structure. Any remaining bones will be enshrined as royal relics at the Throne Hall of the palace, and the ashes will be kept separately at two temples, the government said. The pyre will later be dismantled, its wood sent to temples or other destinations around the country.
The body of King Bhumibol, or Rama IX, now lies in state at the palace, where hundreds of thousands of mourners have filed past to honor the monarch many revere as divine. Every day, thousands of Thais in solemn black make a stark contrast as they cross paths with large groups of brightly dressed tourists.
Over his long reign, the king came to embody the spirit and sense of nationhood of Thailand and his death has been a national trauma.
“The late king has never really left us,” said Sumet Tantivejkul, secretary-general of the Chaipattana Foundation, which oversees many of King Bhumibol’s development projects. “He taught us so many things during his 70-year reign. Let us follow in his footsteps.”
In this overwhelmingly Buddhist nation, beliefs about the monarchy are an amalgam of Buddhism and Hindu mythology. While the chanting of the monks at the funeral will be Buddhist, the cremation itself, with the pyre at its center, will be Hindu, said Tongthong Chandransu, a professor at Chulalongkorn University who is an expert on the monarchy.
“We believe that the king is a god from heaven,” he said. “He is totally a god, so when he passes away he has to get to heaven” to rejoin the main Hindu gods, Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva.
