A convoy of about 20 vehicles travelled 285 kilometres yesterday from Kui Buri National Park in Prachuap Khiri Khan province to deliver sandalwood to be used for HM King Bhumibol Adulyadej's royal cremation ceremony.

A sacred ritual was performed at the national park on November 17 before nine specially selected sandalwood trees were cut down and logged.

A look back at Thailand's King Bhumibol Adulyadej's life

  • King Bhumibol Adulyadej is the world's longest-reigning monarch. His health has been fragile and he has not appeared in public for months.
  • King Ananda Mahidol (pictured here), 20, is found dead in his palace bedroom in Bangkok with a single gunshot wound in the head from a Colt .45 he kept by his bedside. His death shocks the nation. Within hours, his brother Bhumibol Adulyadej, 18, is named the new king. He returns to Switzerland to continue his studies while an uncle acts as regent. The case is later ruled as murder, and two royal servants and a personal secretary of the former king are convicted and executed for plotting to assassinate him.

They were then cut into 1,461 sandalwood strips and many bigger pIeces.

They were sent to the Office of Traditional Arts in Nakhon Pathom province.

Sandalwood is considered an important part of the royal cremation ceremony.

"Kui Buri forest will gain historical value. The future generations will come here and learn about it. It has supplied sandalwood for the royal cremations of many important Royals including HRH Princess Sri Nagarindra the Princess Mother and HRH Princess Galyani Vadhana, and now the late king," Srisawas Boonma, the kamnan of Tambon Hat Kham, said.

Mass display of grief on late Thai king's birthday

  • Thousands of Thais gathered on a Bangkok bridge named after the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej on what would have been his birthday Monday, the latest organised mass display of grief in a divided nation adjusting to life without him.
  • For much of his remarkable seven decade reign, Bhumibol's 5 December birthday was an auspicious moment for Thais with the monarch often delivering key speeches offering social and sometimes distinctly political guidance in a nation buffeted by years of coups and instability.
  • Stricken with ill health in the last decade of his life, he missed his last two birthday appearances before his death aged 88 on 13 October.
  • His passing has plunged Thailand into a year of mourning, heavily orchestrated by an arch-royalist junta who seized power two years ago, and has removed a key pillar of stability.
  • "I still feel lonely and empty as we don't have him anymore," a visibly moved Yaowana Kaewpud, one of the mourners on the bridge, told AFP.
  • The 47-year-old and her daughters had travelled from the outskirts of Bangkok to attend Monday's dawn ceremony, which featured black-clad mourners giving alms to 999 monks.
  • Bhumibol was widely revered as a calming constant and afforded a near god-like status among many Thais through his many years criss-crossing the nation, a reputation further burnished via a slick palace propaganda machine.
  • He was also shielded from any criticism or scrutiny inside the kingdom by a strict lese majeste law forcing subjects and the media to heavily self-censor.
  • His passing is a delicate transition both for the monarchy and its backers in the military elite.
  • Bhumibol forged a strong alliance with Thailand's coup-prone generals, who often used perceived threats against the monarchy to seize power in putsches that were almost always recognised by the king.
  • His reign saw breakneck development but also entrenched disparity between a Bangkok-centric elite and the rural poor.
  • In the last ten years Thailand has been torn apart by competing political factions representing those two sides.
  • While Bhumibol was widely revered, King Maha Vajiralongkorn has not yet achieved the same level of popularity.
  • The 64-year-old prince ascended the throne last Thursday after a seven week hiatus in which he asked to be allowed time to mourn his father.
  • He is comparatively unknown to ordinary Thais, choosing to spend much of his time outside the kingdom and has not given an interview for years.
  • While critical reporting on Vajiralongkorn is curbed, most Thais are aware of his colourful lifestyle, his three marriages and some of the uncensored overseas articles that have been published about him, largely thanks to social media.
  • But forwarding such articles can be perilous.
  • On Sunday, prominent dissident Jatupat Boonpattararaksa was arrested for lese majeste for posting a profile by the BBC's Thai language service on the new monarch on Facebook.
  • He faces up to fifteen years in jail if convicted.
 
Officials loaded the sandalwood into three trucks, which were decorated with black and white ribbons.

More than 20 vehicles were in the convoy as officials and local leaders in Prachuap Khiri Khan followed the trucks.

Police also escorted the trucks.

Praying rituals, however, will take place as usual.

The Royal Household Bureau will open the Sala Sahatai Samakhom inside the Grand Palace between 7.30am and 5pm on January 1 for people to sign wellwish messages for HM King Maha Vajiralongkorn.
