Erawan Shrine (Thao Mahaprom Shrine), Bangkok

4.2
Say a prayer to Phra Phrom at Erawan Shrine (Thao Mahaprom Shrine), a small but popular Hindu shrine. Visitors who stop here often light incense, make an offering of fruit or flowers, and admire the traditional Thai dancers, paid for by supplicants hoping to have their prayers answered. At the heart of the shrine sits a golden statue of Phra Phrom, the four-faced Thai representation of the Hindu god of creation, Lord Brahma. It is a popular tourist destination and is generally safe, however, in 2015 a bomb went off near the shrine, killing 20 people. Plan my Bangkok trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • Nearby shopping malls with few minutes of walking, luckily during our visit it was not peak season and not very crowded.  more »
  • A shrine which is very busy and there is still strong effect. Worth it if you're in the area

  • You can find lots of 4 face Buddha in every corner of Bangkok but this is the most famous one. Known to be the one that can fulfill whatever that you wish for but so remember to come and pray once you got what you wish for.
  • The most famous shrine in Bangkok. Many people pray here everyday. I also pray here when I visited Bangkok at the first time. Hopefully my wishes will all come true.
