Thai people stand in four kilometer line to pay homage to late king

Many Thai people arrived at the Grand Palace to pay homage to the late His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, resulting in a four kilometer queue. 

Thais from all across the country, all dressed in black, gathered in the area outside the Grand Palace waiting in line to enter Sahathai Samakhom Pavilion to pay homage before an image of the late HM the King. 

The overwhelming number of mourners resulted in the four kilometer long line stretching from the Grand Palace’s Wisetchaisri Gate, reported Thai News Bureau.

The general public can pay homage to the late king’s portrait in the Grand Palace daily from 8:30am until 4pm through Oct. 27. The Royal Household Bureau will allow the general public to enter Dusit Maha Prasat Throne Hall to pay homage before the royal urn from 9am until 4pm from Oct. 28.
