The four-faced Buddha, or Erawan Shrine, in Bangkok is a famous Hindu shrine which houses a statue of Phra Phrom, the god of creation also known as Lord Brahma who is full of kindness, mercy, sympathy and impartiality. These four virtues are represented by his four faces, each radiating a serene grace.
The Erawan Shrine attracts thousands of locals and tourists every day to pray for good fortune, success and fulfilling their wishes. Visitors to the Shrine make ceremonial offerings ranging from floral garlands and food to fruit and wooden elephants and classical Thai dance troupes and Chinese Lion Dance performers are also hired throughout the day by worshippers at the Shrine to see their prayers answered. Overlooking the magnificent gilded image of the Brahma God and watching mesmerizing Thai and Chinese performances is a magical experience which will definitely become one of your memorable moments in Bangkok city.
The Erawan Shrine is located in the major business and shopping district at the Ratchaprasong Intersection of Ratchadamri Road. From Pullman Bangkok King Power, you can reach the Shrine by taking the BTS Skytrain from Victory Monument Station to Siam Station, only 3 stops from the hotel, or drop at Chidlom Station, 4 stops from the hotel.
