via The Nation, 01 May 2019: The Thai King, who formally ascended to the throne earlier this month in an elaborate ceremony spanning many days received the royal regalia which has symbolism going back centuries.

His Majesty King Rama X will be presented with a collection of elaborately crafted items to symbolise his sovereignty

Following on from purification bathing and anointing rituals with consecrated water that are at the heart of His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn’s coronation ceremony this Saturday, is the crowning and the investiture ceremony. Each item of the royal regalia to be presented by the chief Brahmin during the ceremony has a symbolic significance, reflecting a practice that goes back to the 13th century during the Sukhothai Period
