A little slice of calm in the center of town, this Hindu shrine is situated on a busy junction. Always teeming with worshippers, it’s a photogenic spot where incense constantly burns and traditional Thai dancers in full costume are often found.

The four face buddha, "Brahma" is a shrine, a place to visit in the busy city environment. It shows the richness of the Thai culture to be prayerful even in their busy daily work.

Visited the shrine due to a tragedy that occurred a few years back. Very popular, and quite crowded as well. Unfortunately unable to get down too close.
