The construction of HRH Princess Galyani Vadhana's royal crematorium and surrounding structures will begin next month. Fine Arts Department Director-General Grienggrai Sumpatchalit said officials would start cordoning off the construction site between February 1 and February 15. He believed the construction would be completed by the end of September, or October 10 at the latest. Built with a budget of 176 million baht, the construction will occupy about half of the total area of Sanam Luang. The budget covers repair work for royal chariots that will also be used in the royal cremation.
