HM King Maha Vajiralongkorn proceeds to the Temple of the Emerald Buddha to proclaim himself the Royal Patron of Buddhism.



A group of 80 monks led by the Supreme Patriarch hold a blessing ceremony for the King.

During the ceremony, HM proclaimed himself as the Royal Patron of Buddhism.

The King will then pay his respects to the statues of the previous kings of the Chakri Dynasty in Prasad Phrathep Bidon before proceeding to the Dusit Maha Prasad Throne Hall to worship the Royal ashes.
