Brilliant to see but if you are worried about heights it could be scary especially the steps but apart from that it's worth a visit

Nice attraction to visit. I took BTS to Bearing and hopped into a waiting taxi (they were lining up at Exit 3). The driver didn't understand "Erawan Museum", so I showed him the map I printed from the museum's website - which had a small icon of the 3-headed elephant - and he understood. Meter showed 63 baht when we... More

This place was unexpectedly brilliant, very surprised not people arent aware of it. The building itself is a spectical, the gardens are also impressive but the inside of the temple is amazing. The intelligence and centiments behind every bit of the place are so interesting it keeps you there far longer than you expect, we were there nearly 3 hours.... More

I don't care much for temples but the Erawan museum and temple is spectacular. It's located on Sukumvit road in Samut Prakarn. It has surrounding gardens, cafes, a gift shop. The temple is inside the body of a giant elephant with three heads! You enter the large circular museum on the base, on top of which the elephant stands. You... More

I'd stumbled across a photo of the three headed elephant on line, and decided I had to see it. After doing some research,I was thrilled to discover it wasn't just a statue,but a whole museum. Not too difficult to get to,I took the train down to bearing (last stop on line) then jumped a cab. Think it cost less than... More

The sight is very interesting, basically a massive 3-headed-elephant monument with a temple bellow it. The statue is so big that you can even notice it from quite a distance! The temple/museum is Hindu style, very very beautiful decor, and even though I know nothing about this kind of stuff I simply thought it's quite stunning! Only problem is far... More

The Erawan Museum in Samut Prakan is a beautiful monument built to encourage people to know the 4 main religions.Outwardly, we see a huge 3 headed elephant, the Erawan on top of a pedestal. In the pedestal were 2 cosmic levels, the underworld and the earth, and within the belly of the elephant is the heavens level. Housed in one... More

Took the skytrain BTS to the final station Bearing, about a 25 minute taxi ride with traffic. Which is between 80 Baht metered. 400 baht per person for a foreigner, 200 by for locals Is the entry fee. Worth about a 2 to 3 hour visit you get a English audio tour included at no charge. Well worth the trip.
