Built incongruously in one of Bangkok's hubs of consumerism, this very popular shrine is devoted to Brahma and Erawan, his elephant. Erected by the Grand Hyatt Erawan Hotel , the shrine was beset by a series of accidents during its construction in the 1950s. Squeeze past the vendors selling garlands and wooden elephants for a glimpse of the glittering open-air pavilion where worshipers gather before the shrine, often barely visible beneath the offerings made. Traditional Thai dancing can often be seen here. Admission is free.
