The Erawan Shrine in Bangkok

Located in front of the Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok, at the intersection of the Rama I and Ratchadamri Roads, the Erawan Shrine is one of the best known and most popular shrines in Bangkok. Some Thai people believe that praying and making an offering at this shrine will bring them good luck, and that after receiving good luck, particularly a cash windfall, that they should also come and pray at the Erawan Shrine. The shrine is busy all day long. Its location in the city centre means a lot of people pass by it every day, and a variety of vendors and dancers make their livings selling offerings to place at the shrine or putting on performances of traditional dancing. The shrine was also the target of a terrorist attack in 2015 which killed 20 people.

Erawan is the Thai name for the three headed elephant of Hindu mythology which carried the Hindu god Indra. The main shrine is, however, dedicated to the Hindu god Brahma, portrayed in Thai culture with four faces and as the giver of good fortune. The shrine was built in 1956 under the direction a fortune teller whose help was sought to address the bad luck which was believed to have resulted from the placement of the foundations of the newly constructed Erawan Hotel on an inauspicious day. The astrologer which the government consulted recommended that the shrine be dedicated to Brahma.
