Eleven Albino Elephants from Thailand’s ancient capital of Ayutthaya,during a procession for his burial in Bangkok, today, Tuesday November 8, 2016, knelt in respect for the country’s late king Bhumibol Adulyadej, who died in October 13th, 2016.
The elephants and about 200 handlers marched in parade to the glittering Grand Palace of the late king, before the animals crouched down on their kneels for the observation of a one-minute silence, in memory of the late king, who died last month, aged 88, after 70 years on the throne.
Thailand has been plunged into grief since after the King’s death while an extended one year mourning period is held throughout the country in respect to the late king. More pictures after the cut:
