Erawan Shrine

Shrine is the best-known and most revered by tourist from Hong Kong, Malaysia, and Singapore. The Erawan Shrine is very famous for bringing good fortune especially in the area of business. Most of the visitors to visit the shrine deliver offerings of incense, candles, jasmine garlands and gold leaf.

Erawan Shrine is Brahman and not strictly Buddhist. But this famous shrine attracts more visitors than many of the city’s temples. Erawan Shrine was erected at mid 1950s when the Thai government decided to build the luxury Erawan Hotel on this location. Proceed of the construction were beset with so many problems that labourers refused to continue the construction works unless the land spirits were appeased. After consultations with astrologers, the erection of a shrine to honour the four-faced Brahma God, Than Tao Mahaprom, was considered to be an auspicious solution.
