4.2/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web
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.

  • “So close to BTS Siam, you have to visit it.” The Erawan Shrine has an intresting history as it was built to ward of all the evil tha befell on the Erawan Hotel while it as beng built. It's very close to the Siam BTS station, s a visit is easy. It's inteesting as worshippers pay a dancegroup to perform, mostly as a means to say thanks to the god(s). Stay some time to watch and soak in everything that's happening.
  • The most recognized Shrine in Thailand, everybody goes there to pray for whatever reason. Always is crowded and very busy. Is in the corner of Ratchadamri Rd and Phloem Chi Rd. At the Grand Hyatt Erawan Hotel.
  • One of the most reverred shrines in Bangkok which enters it's 60th anniversary this year in 2016, and is frequented by many celebrities. Lots of prayer options to suit all walks of life.
