Erawan Shrine

Tuesday, June 25th, 2013

One of the most revered statues in the city, the Erawan Shrine bustles with activity from early morning to late night. It attracts Bangkokians seeking divine intervention for success in school exams, love, business, and the lottery. Successful supplicants repay the spirits by hiring dance troupes to perform or by donating wooden elephants. It offers a fascinating panoply of Bangkok life. (Daily 6 a.m.-midnight)
