via Bangkok Post, 14 October 2018: A museum is being constructed in Thailand to commemorate the royal crematorium of the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
After the cremation was completed in October last year, the splendid structures were removed from the Sanam Luang ground. It has been royal protocol to remove such structures.
Now, the Ministry of Culture plans to build a 800-million-baht Museum of the Royal Cremation of His Majesty Bhumibol Adulyadej to display art pieces and materials used to construct and decorate the Royal Crematorium.
According to the Office of Architecture at Fine Arts Department (FAD), architectural designs for the new museum are now 90% complete and construction is expected to begin in 2019 and finish in 2020.
