Erawan Shrine highlights
Than Tao Mahaprom is a Brahma god known for his kindness, mercy, sympathy and impartiality. Since Buddhism in Thailand has always been influenced by Brahman beliefs, he made an immediate impact on the locals.
Streams of people from around the world make ceremonial offerings of incense sticks, floral garlands, fruits, and teakwood elephants. Judging from the crowds of believers, it seems that Erawan Shrine has granted many wishes throughout the years.
Cash contributions are managed by a foundation, who regularly distributes funds to charitable organisations and provides equipment for hospitals in Thailand’s many provinces. Erawan Shrine hosts graceful Thai classical dance performances several times a day, as well as lively lion dances on special occasions.
