A little slice of calm in the center of town, this Hindu shrine is situated on a busy junction. Always teeming with worshippers, it’s a photogenic spot where incense constantly burns and traditional Thai dancers in full costume are often found.

Near to the Train station (ChitLom). 5-10min walk distance. Very convenient. Many followers all day long. Many motorists will pray to the Buddha when drive past. Come and visit this place even you are not a buddhist.

You can easily walk to this shrine if you are in the Sukhumvit/Siam area of Bangkok. It's always busy there and there are always traditional dancing on the stage. Great for photos.

I didn't know the exact reason. At first, I was looking for the lit candle for the joystick, and I found nothing until I saw the notice. It stated it is for health reason and pollution.
