Erawan Shrine (Thao Mahaprom Shrine), Bangkok Overview

The Erawan Shrine was built in 1956 after the Thai government constructed the luxury Erawan hotel at the location. The superstitious labourers and other astrologers decided to honour the Brahma God Thao Mahaprom and hence built this shrine. Ceremonial offerings are made by Thais and tourists to get their wishes fulfilled. Catching a traditional Thai dance performance here is a joyful experience too.

Erawan Shrine is not strictly Buddhist as per tourist expectations but is Brahman, conceptualised after the four-faced Brahma called Than Thao Mahaprom. Erawan means Airaavatha in Thai; depicting a huge elephant with three to thirty-three heads and more than two tusks.
