Background
Financial and spiritual meeting in Bangkok >  Thai dancers can often be seen at Erawan.

The Erawan Shrine (officially named Thao Maha Brahma) in Bangkok is not old, but it is an interesting testament of the role of religion in modern Thai society.
History:  Built in 1956 to appease the supposed evil forces that were taking the lives of construction workers and causing other calamities in the construction what is now the Grand Hyatt Erawan. 

Shouldered by busy intersection and beneath the Skytrain - Famous shrine attracts many visitors. Erected in the mid 1950s after the Govt., decided to build the luxury Erawan Hotel at this location. However, the construction was beset with many problems that superstitious labourers refused to continue unless the spirits were appeased. 

After consultations with the wise spiritual leaders, erection of a shrine to honour the four-faced Brahma God, Than Tao Mahaprom. A magnificent image of the Brahma God was cast and gilded and The Erawan Hotel opened to acclaims and worldwide fame. 
Towards the end, the property could not compete with more modern facilities, and was replaced by the privately owned Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok in 1991. Originally constructed to grace the old Erawan Hotel, the location became known as the Erawan Shrine.

After the shrine was erected, construction deaths stopped and the hotel grew very prosperous. The apparent effectiveness of the monument made the shrine one of the most revered spots in Thailand. The great importance of the shrine became terribly apparent in 2006, when a mentally disturbed Thai man attacked the statue with a hammer - onlookers beat him to death in broad daylight. The statue was replaced within two months, incorporating pieces from the original image.
