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.

This is a holy shrine outside the Erawan mall. People from all walks of life come and pray to Buddha for happy life. There are dancers performing around the shrine and couple of souvenir shops. Do visit if you are a tourist. It is near big c and world trade centre and opposite of holiday inn.
This is a sacred place where people of all walks of life comes here to offer prayers for good health, good fortune, blessings, seek forgiveness and many. Some people came here to seek advices and pray, hoping to find a good spouse while some pray hoping to strike big lotteries and win a fortune. The Thai people said this is the first shrine that was built before Bangkok. There offering of flowers, joss sticks, candles at a minimal price between 30 baht to 50 baht and also offering for traditional dance show to please the shrine. This place is one of the most famous shrine in Bangkok City Centre. Go and pray, you'll be granted your wishes but pray truthfully. I and friends pray and wish here many times, and most wishes are almost fulfilled. After which, make sure go back to offer your most sincere Thanks to the shrine.
