     The Erawan Shrine was commissioned in the 1950s after construction of the Erawan Hotel in Bangkok was plagued with problems and deaths. The shrine was erected to appease the spirits, and thus allow construction of the hotel to continue smoothly. After the shrine was erected, construction problems ceased, and the finished hotel went on to become very successful. The Erawan Hotel was eventually replaced by the Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok in 1991,but the Erawan Shrine itself still remains.

    The shrine consists of a dazzling canopy, under which sits a golden statue of the Brahma God, Than Tao Mahaprom. Than Tao Mahaprom is the god of kindness, mercy, and good fortune, and praying to each of his 4 faces brings different blessings. The shrine's success in improving the fortune of the original Erawan Hotel has made it an extremely popular and revered site for Thais and visitors alike. From early morning until night, the shrine is crowded with people making offerings of flowers, fruit and teakwood elephants. Traditional Thai dancing also often takes place around the Erawan Shrine located by the Grand Hyatt Erawan Hotel.
