Meet your guide at a central location in Bangkok and set out to discover several Buddhist shrines, each located within walking distance. You’ll receive a brief introduction at the start of your half-day walking tour, as your knowledgeable guide orients you to enchanting deities with roots linked to ancient Hindu traditions.
You’re introduced to Thai representations of Hindu gods such as Ganesh, the elephant god that promotes creativity and protection from harm; Lord Indra, who takes care of all of humankind; and Phra Phrom, a version of Lord Brahma believed to bring good fortune.
Learn about local worship practices as your guide explains the mythology behind each deity and its divine symbols. Feel free to purchase appropriate offerings from local vendors next to each shrine, then light your own candle and make a wish.
