On 12 August 2019, the Royal Thai Embassy in Colombo organized a merit making ceremony on the occasion of the Birthday Anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit The Queen Mother for the year 2019 at Sri Sambhodi Maha Viharaya Temple, Colombo.

The event was attended by about 35 participants, including officials from the Royal Thai Embassy, officials of the Thai Airways International, board members of the Sri Lanka – Thailand Society, and board members of the Sri Lanka - Thailand Business Council, and members of the Thai community. During the ceremony, 12 monks from Sri Sambhodi Maha Viharaya Temple and Jayasekararamaya Temple offered blessing to Her Majesty Queen Sirikit The Queen Mother. Afterwards, participants offered dhana and alms to the 12 monks.

After the religious ceremony, the Embassy organized a Candle Lighting Ceremony to celebrate the auspicious occasion at the residence of the Ambassador.
