Very crowded but an excellent way to see how the Thais and tourists honour their religion. There's also dancing by Thai dancers that devotees engage to honour their 4-face Buddha

Built originally as to ward off evil. Located near central world and easily accessible by the BTS through the skywalk from siam bts station. The shrine is always bustling with devotees and worshippers. Beautiful place to be at.

Really Very Special Shrine. It is Beautiful! There Four Face Buddha here is gold - plated very clean and organised.
Also there is a team of dancer who perform all day a religious dance to the Four Face Buddha very calming. Visitor believer lined up, presumed they pay a little fee and the dancers perform a little dance to the Four Face Buddha on their behalf.
The offering of flowers is endless all day everyday really an experience to visit. Very Unique!

Completed in 1956 by the then government owner of erawan hotel. It was to ward off bad luck as they laid the foundation on the wrong date. Since then it looks like hyatt took over the management. Also infamous for the 2015 bombing

A very popular place to worship for both Thai's and overseas visitors... very colourful and smells of the incense sticks. This is a must visit place if your in Bangkok even if your not that religious as you can get some nice colourful photos.
