Coronation is the most important ceremony of sovereign monarchs as it is the official proclamation and as such, the recognition of the new king by the loyal subjects of the monarch. The ceremony is conducted by the Chief Brahmin priest according to the traditional belief that the King is a divine being descended down to earth to help alleviate hardship and generate prosperity in the Kingdom.
