What travelers say:

The Trimurti Shrine is located at the busy Ratchaprasong junction in downtown Bangkok at the corner of the Central World Plaza, (former World Trade Centre) across the road from the famous Erawan Shrine.Though less hectic than the Erawan Shrine, the Trimurti Shrine has an aura of its own.Legend has it that those who pray here for true love will have their dreams fulfilled.Worshippers are mostly local who normally come in the evenings to make their offerings of garlands and joss sticks.Trimurti refers to the Trinity of Hindu Gods consisting of Brahma the creator, Vishnu the sustainer and Siva the destroyer, the three most important gods in HinduismThe deity is a gold statue of a human body with two heads and four arms. The heads are one on top of the other; the lower head has four faces.Built in 1989, the Trimurti Shrine is on a raised platform, sheltered by a dome on four pillars with elaborately carved gables at the four sides.There's an open area around the shrine with a ring of seats for worshippers to sit and reflect. Crafted in classical Indian sculpture with a Thai touch, the statue is a replica of the original from old Ayutthaya.Like other shrines in Bangkok, the Trimurti Shrine was built to answer the prayers of people seeking success, prosperity and happiness.The shrine somehow acquired a reputation of granting happiness in romance, as it's very popular with young Thais who associate the shrine with the god of love.Legends build upon themselves and as the fame of the shrine grew, so did the flock of faithful. Such is the renown of the shrine that it's sometimes referred to as the Lovers' Shrine.There's an air of peace and serenity around the shrine and the place just has a natural draw for people.
