Thais in Malaysia Pay Respects to Late King at Buddhist Temple

KUALA LUMPUR – Thais in Malaysia gathered at a Buddhist temple in Kuala Lumpur to pay their respects to the late Thai King Bhumibol Adulyadej, who passed away on Oct. 13.

About 30 people were seen at Wat Chetawan, a popular Buddhist temple for Thai expatriates in Petaling Jaya near the capital, for evening ceremonies in honor of the late monarch on Friday, an epa journalist reported.

Monks opened the ceremony with a speech about Bhumibol, and then chanted during the service.

Attendees, some of whom brought flowers for the service, sat on the floor and prayed, and others signed a book of condolences.

The temple also offered a slideshow showing images from the life of the late Thai head of state.

The ceremonies, which lasted about two and a half hours on Friday, are scheduled to continue at Wat Chetawan for nine days, according to an attendee.

King Bhumibol, the world’s longest-reigning monarch, passed away on Oct. 13 at Bangkok’s Siriraj Hospital at the age of 88.

Thousands of people stood on the streets of Bangkok on Friday evening to watch a convoy of vehicles as the King’s body was carried to the Grand Palace where royal bathing rites were performed.
