The Erawan Shrine was originally erected in 1956 during the construction of the Erawan Hotel because the property’s spirit house wasn’t able to appease spirits disrupted by the building work. Spiritual advisers suggested building a shrine dedicated to the four-headed image of Lord Brahma, and since its investiture, Phra Phrom has become renowned for bringing good fortune. Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok, together with the Than Tao Mahaprom Erawan Hotel Foundation, make offerings to the Erawan Shrine every year on the 9th November.
