Thailand is known for its glittering temples, wats, and pagodas. The famous Erawan Shrine is one of the most visited Hindu shrines in the nation. Here you'll find worshippers offering incense, garlands of flowers, prayers and paying for traditional Thai dances to be performed for the deity. 

Built in 1956 by the Erawan Hotel to banish the bad karma supposedly created by constructing the hotel an inauspicious time. The area is spiritually significant, with shrines in honor of Hindu deities including Lakshmi, Trimurti, and Ganesha nearby.
