Erawan Shrine | ศาลพระพรหม

One Bangkok's most famous Hindu shrines was built in 1956 to calm the spirits that were supposedly causing problems with the construction of a new hotel at that spot.

There's always a flurry of activity, covered in clouds of incense; dozens of worshippers, temple dancers, vendors in and outside the shrine selling religious objects and after payment releasing birds from little cages. Benches surround the shrine area, so sit down and watch the action, or observe from the BTS walkway above. location * website
