Hindu Shrines at Ratchaprasong

Hindu Shrines in Bangkok.
With rich historical ties to ancient India, the birth of Buddhism has journeyed from the religious pantheons of India right here to Ratchaprasong. Aside from the fine shopping, dining, and entertainment, this famed district also boasts a wealth of culture, religious, and spiritual attractions for Thai Buddhists and foreign visitors alike.
The Hindu Shrines at Ratchaprasong Intersection.
1. The Indra Shrine.
This Shrine houses the image of the Hindu God, Indra who is in concept the supreme ruler of all the Gods. He is made of dark jade and the statue is some 80 meters east from The Erawan Shrine in front of the building called Amarin Plaza. Indra is regarded as the Diety that looks after mankind.
2. The Trimurti Shrine.
This shrine includes the three pillars of Hindu Gods, Brahma the Creator, Shiva the Destroyer and Vishnu the Preserver. The image is in bronze and is gold plated.
3. The Erawan Shrine.
Erawan is the name of the mythical Hindu elephant which was Rama's mount. This however is the name of a Hindu Shrine depicting the image of Phra Phrom. It is a Brahmin Shrine. Similar four headed gold plated images of Rama can be seen often in Thailand particularly out side large hotel buildings. This is not to be confused with the Thai Spirit Houses also often placed in front of buildings.
4. The Narayana Shrine of Lord.
Vishnu mounted above Garuda the mythical bird. This large bronze statue is located out front of the Inter-Continental Hotel on the Northeast side of the Ratchaprasong intersection.
5. The Goddess Lakshimi Statue.
This also can be scene outside the Inter-Continental Hotel. Lakshimi was the female consort of Lord Narayana and is revered for beauty fertility and wealth.
6. The Lord Ganesh Shrine.
Ganesh is another Hindu Diety. He has the head of an elephant and the body of a fat human male.
The Image here is in bronze and is gold plated.
Elsewhere in Bangkok images of Lord Ganesh can be seen where the arts, education and media activities are located.
This is because Lord Ganesh as the diety of good fortune and the remover of obstacles is associated with trade, arts and education.
His image is on the emblem of the Ministry of Fine Arts.
Another image can be seen at the location of the Hindu Giant Red Swing at Wat Suthat in a shelter on the immediate right front side of the main entrance to Wat Suthat.
Other good examples can be scene in the National Museum Bangkok which was brought to Thailand from Java, again at the Hindu Temple, Wat Pra Sri Umadevi, at Silom Road Bangkok which was brought to Thailand from India in the 19th C, and again on a pedistal in front of the Central World Plaza in Bangkok.
