Trimurti Shrine in Bangkok is where lovelorn singles wearing red turn up every Thursday evening at 9.30pm. They pay their respects to Trimurti, the god of love, with offerings of red roses – all in the name of love, and in the hope that they’ll meet their eternal sweethearts. The shrine is a landmark in front of CentralWorld in the Siam area of Bangkok.

In Hinduism, Trimurti represents the 3 aspects of God: Brahma (the Source/Creator), Vishnu (the Preserver) and Shiva (the Transformer or Destroyer).

The deity is a gold statue of a human body with 2 heads and 4 arms. The heads are one on top of the other, and the lower head has 4 faces. Built in 1989, the Trimurti Shrine is on a raised platform, sheltered by a dome on 4 pillars with elaborately carved gables at the four sides.

There's an open area around the shrine with a ring of seats for worshippers to sit and reflect. Crafted in classical Indian sculpture with a Thai touch, the statue is a replica of the original from Ayutthaya.
