Around Bangkok – Phra Trimurti (The God of Love) @ Central World (Thailand)

Phra Trimurti??Shrine (The God of Love) @ Central World (Bangkok)

Located in front of Isetan at Central World on Ratchadamri Road is the Trimurti status, The God of Love. The deity is a combination form of three prominent deities of Hinduism, viz. Brahma (the Creator), Vishnu (the Preserver), and Shiva (the Destroyer). Thai people believe that the Phra Trimurti will help ??them to solve all love problems. It is gaining in popularity among Thai teenagers and young couples seeking for true love in recent years .

It was once built directly across the Erawan Shrine (Four-Faced Buddha ) to offset the enormous power of Brahma and to improve the business of former World Trade Center. However, the feng shui advice did not work. The site was Phetchabun Palace in the old days. The shrine was relocated to another corner of the building by the new management of Central World. Now, Phra Trimurti, the God of Love, stands gracefully in the middle of a soothing water feature next to the Ganesh Shrine in front of Isetan with a constant flow of young devotee.

According to legend, Phra Trimurti descends on earth to listen to prayers’ wishes on Tuesday and Thursday after 9.00pm. The best day is still Thursday. If you are seeking for true love, here is a golden opportunity. Just grab a bundle of red roses or dalah flowers and fruits like rambutan or dragon fruit (kaew mungkorn in Thai) and 9 or 16 red incense sticks together with a chanting note in Thai from the street vendors. I can’t read Thai so I only pay my respects and place the roses on the edge of the water feature.

It takes me a while to find out the name of the shrine and initially, I thought that it was another Brahma shrine too.I can see a great business improvement for Central World after the relocation. Nowadays, if my friends had any problem with relationship, I would advise them to pray to Phra Trimurti in Bangkok and who knows you may find your true love somewhere out there.Please keep in mind to repay your favour when the time come:-)

Getting There:
Skytrain to Siam Square if you are from the Silom Line or skytrain to Chit Lom Station if you are in Sukhumvit Line.
