The announcement came as huge crowds of grief-stricken people from across the country thronged the Grand Palace to pay their respects.

The Bureau said the Grand Palace would be closed to tourists for seven days. However, it has opened the Sala Sahathai Samakhom Pavilion inside the compound, where people can sign books of condolence until Thursday (Oct 20).

People were today allowed to pay their respects in the pavilion from noon to 4pm.The gates will be opened from 8.30am to 4pm tomorrow through Thursday.

Bureau officials today asked black-clad mourners to form four queues to enter the Wiset Chaisri Gate on Na Phra That Rd before the gate was opened.

The body of the King was yesterday (Oct 14) taken from Siriraj Hospital to the Phiman Rattaya Throne Hall inside the Grand Palace after he passed away peacefully at the hospital on Thursday (Oct 13).

Areas around the Grand Palace were very crowded with people forming long queues from the Wiset Chaisri Gate to the Pin Klao Bridge. Many were seen holding portraits of the King. More people kept arriving as the afternoon wore on.

Rescue volunteers distributed drinking water and food for people waiting to enter. Officials, soldiers and police were deployed to maintain peace and order.
