Shrine, Nai Lert Park

Shrine, Nai Lert Park (Google Maps)
No Thumbnail
One of Bangkok's most unique animist shrines resides under the tree circled in the upper left corner. Here, favors are asked of Tubtim, a water spirit that lives in the adjacent canal. If a wish is granted, devotees leave phallic offerings of all shapes and sizes. Hundreds of colorful examples are lined up around the shrine. The building at the right is the former Hilton Hotel, which at one time attempted to stop visitors from accessing the shrine. Subsequently they lost their lease. The hotel is now named after the original property owner, Nai Lert.
