On 29 October at 10.30 hr, the fifth procession will be arranged to transfer the Royal Relics from Dusit Maha Prasat Throne Hall to be enshrined in the Heavenly Abode at Chakri Maha Prasat Throne Hall within the Grand Palace.

The Heavenly Abode at Chakri Maha Prasat Throne Hall is where the Royal Relics of King Rama IV, King Rama V, King Rama VI, King Rama VII, and King Rama VIII are enshrined.

At 17.30 hr on the same day, the sixth procession will be arranged to transfer The Royal Ashes from Phra Sri Rattana Chedi in the Temple of the Emerald Buddha to be enshrined at two temples: Wat Rajabopidh and Wat Bovoranives.

Wat Rajabopidh was built at the command of King Chulalongkorn to have mausoleums to enshrine the relics and ashes of royals. Wat Bovoranives was the residence of the kings of the Royal House of Chakri when they entered the monkhood. His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej also stayed at this temple during his 15-day ordination in 1956.
