[Bangkok] Erawan Shrine

F1020033

Located near Chidlom Station, Erawan Shrine is dedicated to the statue of Phra Phrom, the deity of good fortune and protection. There were many people streaming in and out of its gates when we arrived on a weekday morning in Feb. We observed as devotees offered incense and jasmine garlands by placing the offerings before all four heads of the statue. Hundreds of joss sticks were lit at the same time, filling the air with a thick cloud of incense that left me tearing non-stop.
