About
A little slice of calm in the center of town, this Hindu shrine is situated on a busy junction. Always teeming with worshippers, it’s a photogenic spot where incense constantly burns and traditional Thai dancers in full costume are often found.

The Erawan Shrine is quite popular among locals and tourists. The place is quite small and always crowded with worshipers. Only come if you need to pray here.

I like to watch the dancers when I am walking on the footbridge nearby. This is a fairly small shrine but a very interesting one and in the middle of some of the best shopping malls in town, too,

I stopped at this Shrine while I was walking to the busy shopping district. There are a lot of people at any given moment praying at the shrine so peacefully. The shrine certainly is a place where you can experience tranquillity.
