There are three zones in the Saphan Hin ceremonial area including the centre, where the ceremony ground is located with the model crematorium (Phra Meru Mas).
The inner layer is where the screening point is set for security and to check the appropriateness of the attendees which is located at the gymnasium of 4,000 seats. Here, food and drinks service from donors are available.
The outer layer is the other area of Sapan Hin, which will be available for everyone else outside the 4,000-seat gymnasium. At the ceremony ground only 4 people are allowed to lay wooden flowers at the same time.
