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.

I lived in Bangkok as a child, and this shrine hasn't changed in 50 years. It is an important Buddhist site and a beautiful place to stop and visit while in Bangkok. The original Erawan Hotel has been torn down and rebuilt, but the shrine lives on and gives the corner a feeling of continuity over time.

In the heart of town, this shrine is tucked into a busy corner and is a good place to sample traditional dancing and music

We visited the shrine and if you are a tourist, I'd actually recommend avoiding it. Shrine is small and wasn't that interesting. In a crowded area.

This shrine is very close to a few of the malls therefore you will most likely find yourself in the area so leave the malls and go visit. It is at a busy location so don't expect peace however it is nice to pause for a moment and enjoy people watching or just being there.

This shrine in the heart of Bangkok's shopping district is a gorgeous respite amongst the busy bustle.
