Royal Barge Procession for Royal Kathin Ceremony on 5 November 2007

Royal Barge Procession for Royal Kathin Ceremony at Wat Arun Ratchawararam, 5 November 2007.
Thailand’s Royal Barge Procession (กระบวนพยุหยาตราชลมารค) is a ceremony which since nearly 700 years ago. The exquisitely crafted Royal Barges are a blend of craftsmanship and traditional Thai art. The Royal Barge Procession takes place rarely, typically coinciding with only the most significant cultural and religious events. This time is a royal ceremony for the King Bhumibol Adulyadej to personally presents robes (Kathin) to the Buddhist Monks at Wat Arun Ratchawararam (วัดอรุณราชวราราม)which traditionally takes place at end of the annual Buddhist Rains Retreat, or 'Ork Pansa : ออกพรรษา'.

Thailand’s Royal Barge Procession most likely began during the Ayutthaya period, in the 14th century. Western visitors witnessed and wrote about the immense procession with about 200 boats upon their arrival in Thailand in the 18th century.

The Royal Barge Procession formation is arranged into five columns, with the Royal Barges in the center, and two rows of war barges on each side.

The Royal Barge Anantanagaraj, Suphannahongsa, Narai Song Suban HM Rama IX and Anekchatbhuchongse are arranged from first to last in the center column respectively.
