The five day funeral procession for King Bhumibol finally came to a close yesterday when his ashes were transferred from the temple of the emerald Buddha to two royal temples. October 30th was the first day of the former King of Thailands funeral, and hundreds of thousands of people lined the street to honor him and observe the spectacle. Over a year ago, on October 13, 2016 he passed away, and ever since the country has been in mourning. Those that came out tried to catch a glimpse of this royal chariot transporting his urn to his 164 foot pyre. Most of those that lived in Thailand had never seen another monarch rule over the country, and are uncertain of the future of Thailand. King Bhumibol Adulyadej was one of the longest reigning monarch in world history, ruling over Thailand for seven decades before his passing. Now, with the Thai uncertain of their future, it is up to Vajiralongkorn, the son of the former ruler to set Thailand on a path of stability and welfare.
