Royal Cremation in Bangkok, Thailand

If you are neither Thai nor Buddhist you might probably don't know what is showed in the following pictures.  At the beginning, when we went to take some picture of this place, although I was told by my wife about this place, I got confused too.  I was almost sure that I was taking picture of The Grand Palace.  After some panoramic shots, we approached it, and I noticed that it was quite different from the Grand Palace.  I asked my wife how they did to change the grand palace...  and she told me that this is not the grand palace but a royal crematorium.  As you can see in the pictures, the infrastructure and color of this special crematorium is really beautiful.  

The one who is going to be incinerated on Monday 9th of April is the Thai Princess Bhetcharata -the daughter of one of the former Thai Kings- who died in July last year (2011).
