Erawan Shrine (Bangkok-Thailand)
Erawan Shrine is known among domestic people and tourists and attracts more than a million visitors every year. It was built in 1956 to scare the evil ghosts that caused the deaths and injuries of workers who built the Grand Hyatt Erawan, right down to the shrine, and it is believed that this was triggered by a wrong date of setting the foundation. Erawan is a Hindu sanctuary devoted to Brahma, or Phra Phrom – the Thai version of Hindu creator Brahma. In front of the shrine, You will be able to see Thai dancers in their national costumes performing their dances and they are paid by the believers so their prayers will be heard. In August 2015, there was a terrorist attack in front of the sanctuary where 20 people were killed and 125 were injured.
