Information

Erawan Shrine is Brahman, not strictly Buddhist. And yet this famous shrine attracts more visitors than many of the city's temples. It was erected during the mid 1950s, after the Thai government decided to build the luxury Erawan Hotel on this location. However, the first stages of the construction were beset with so many problems that superstitious labourers refused to continue unless the land spirits were appeased.
