Located in the center of the city is the Erawan Shrine. It was built in the 1950s. This Brahman shrine was made to protect the surrounding area after it was plagued by a series of unfortunate events, including the delayed construction of the Grand Hyatt Erawan. Locals gather here at all times of day, to light incense. It is best photographed at night from the walkway above it. The walkway connects Siam and Chit Lom.
