Erawan Shrine ~ Golden Statue of Four-Faced God - The Phra Phrom In Bangkok Thailand.
Every day, thousands of devotees both Thai and foreigners pray at the shrine to seek blessings, fulfillment of dreams, success in personal lives and careers. The Erawan Shrine stands majestically in glittering gold at the busy junction of Ploenchit and Rajadamri Roads in the heart of downtown Bangkok. This photos taken by me in year 2008.

Thai dancers can often be seen at Erawan. A popular tourist attraction, it often features performances by resident Thai dance troupes, who are hired by worshippers in return for seeing their prayers at the shrine answered.
