Building a Vision of Heaven for Thailand’s ‘God’




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 irriga
tion projects.
It will have paintings of angels and mythical creatures, and hundreds of sculptures, including a statue of the king’s favorite dog, Tongdaeng.
