Saudi Arabia’s King Salman has touched down in Indonesia in his gold-clad plane with 1,000 aides and a range of creature comforts on board.
The 81-year-old monarch is also said to have had a VIP toilet built for him at a mosque in Jakarta while bringing 500 tons of luggage.
The haul includes two escalators and a pair of Mercedes-Benz limousines.
The Istiqlal Grand Mosque in central Jakarta has prepared a special toilet for the king, The Jakarta Post reports.
The toilet, located in the mosque’s VIP room, also includes a closet “which is 12 centimeters higher than any usual closets”.
“On the sides of the closet, there are handgrips that will help King Salman to sit and stand,” the newspaper reported.
King Salman, 81, held talks with Indonesia’s president today and signed a range of cooperation agreements at the beginning of a 12-day visit to the world’s largest Muslim-majority country.
King Salman is being accompanied by an entourage that Indonesian officials have said could number up to 1,500.
His party is bringing 459 tons of luggage and equipment, including two luxury cars, according to media.
The royal visit is the first by a Saudi monarch in nearly five decades.
