You are in Thailand, a country of mysterious beliefs, so why not take advantage of this opportunity to pray for a long lasting love for you two? Bangkok has a shrine named Trimurti Shrine, just on the Rajdamri Road, in front of Central World Mall. Known as the Shrine of Love, this sacred place is full of young people praying for their dream lovers or to save a broken heart. You will find the Love deity is a gold statue of a human body with two heads and four arms. The heads are one on top of the other, and the lower head has four faces. To receive the blessing from the God Trimurti you must follow exactly this ritual: - Go to the Trimurti Shrine at 9:30 am or 9:30 pm on Thursday. - Prepare 9 red roses, 9 red incense sticks and 2 red candles (because you are a couple. Single only needs only one candle) - Hold the red roses and red incense sticks in your hands, get down on your knees in front of the shrine and say the prayer which is written on a stone below. - Offer the roses to the god and put the candle and incense sticks in the pot.
The sidewalk leading to the shrine is filled with red roses and incense vendors
Because of the belief, the shrine is always crowded on Thursday. The size of the crowd peaks just before 9:30 pm and by 9:45 pm because that is when Trimurti descends from heaven to hear the prayers of his believers. It means you’ll have to wait for your turn. But isn’t this small thing to do for love?
