The huge elephant statue outside is - at least for me - a bit deceiving , coz I thought it looked highly touristic. But the moment you enter the building "inside this elephant structure" you feel quitness, serenity. It is vastly different from the huge BangkokTemples (Wat ).

yes it was spectacular, almost like an asian version of the sistine chapel for buddhism, full of marble and exotic stone sculptures, art and traditional craft but very expensive for thai standards..The garden was well kept and gorgeous. Very hot. Bring mosquito spray.

A beautiful place. The elephant has got to be on your list of things to see in Bangkok. The gardens are peaceful.

The architecture is amazing! I was most impressed as there is so much to see here. Am so glad that I visited this place, on our way to the Ancient Siam. The audio tour is very informative as well. Lots to see!!

This is a beautiful area which when near you cannot miss as the 3 headed elephant shows you the way. the museum inside gives you more insight to Thai history & the audio guide is a great assistance to it, Unfortunately the paper guide for the audio guide is not that good as you have to work out which number...

We liked this museum which contained loads of artefacts representing how the Thais lived years back - we really loved the crockery (such delicious delicate colourful drawings on them). Its quite a remarkable museum because from the outside, it's a 3-headed elephant and inside, it is really humongous! There are stairs leading to the 'heads' of the elephants - oh,... More

Took BTS to Bearing Station and took taxi to Erawan Musuem, about 90-110 baht. Better bring one of the photo of 3 head big elephant and show taxi driver cause some taxi driver don't know where is Erawan Museum. Pay entrance fee (400 baht per person) and can pray and start explore. I wear dress but maybe not long enough,... More
