What travelers say:

Ratchaprasong is the name of an intersection, and a shopping district named after it, in Pathum Wan District, Bangkok, adjacent to the Siam area, at the BTS Skytrain's Chit Lom Station and the intersection of Phloen Chit, Rama I, and Ratchadamri Roads. The area is home to many shopping malls and hotels.Erawan Shrine – A Hindu/Buddhist shrine in Bangkok, Thailand, that houses a statue of four-faced Brahma Sahampati, has regular dance performances put on by a troupe paid by worshippers whose prayers at the shrine were answered.Eight other shrines are located in the area as well: Phra Mae Laksami (Lakshmi), Phra Mae Uma (Uma), Phra Trimurati (Trimurti), Phra Khanet (Ganesh), Phra In (Indra), Phra Narai Song Suban (Narayana riding on garuda), Phra Narai Song Nak (Narayana riding on naga), and Thao Chatulokkaban (Four Heavenly Kings). For Phra Trimurati has long been mistaken for Trimurti, but in 2017 it was revealed that in fact, it is Sadasiva or five-faced Shiva. Sadasiva is worshiped as the god of love. Therefore, there are often many teenagers who come to pray for love, especially on Thursday nights at 9:30 p.m. or Valentine's Day. From the presence of nine Hindu shrines, hence, Ratchaprasong is known among Thai people as "Intersection of Gods".
