The Erawan Shrine has a fascinating history; located at the Grand Hyatt Erawan Hotel, the shrine was built in 1956 when Astrologers suggested building the shrine to counteract all the bad karma they were experiencing during the construction of the hotel. Because of the auspiciousness of the shrine, no further accidents happened until construction finished. Even after the hotel was demolished, hundreds of people still flock the shrine today to pay their respects and to dance with Thai classical dancers.
