Today, three temples in the province of Nong Bua Lamphu in northeastern Thailand held burial and cremation ceremonies for the victims of Thursday’s murder at a daycare center in that region. The rituals were financed by the royal family of Thailand. Other objects such as toys, bicycles, flowers, fruit, and incense were placed in front of wreaths bearing the images and names of the dead, the majority of whom were young children. People from approximately 6000 different residences in the neighborhood gathered to pay their respects by kneeling before the images. The deceased were honored by Buddhist monks wearing saffron robes and performing prayers in Pali. Today, friends and family came at Wat Sammakhi, Wat Si Uthai, and What Thep Mongkhon Phichai in the Na Khlang area to bid their deceased loved ones farewell.
