Nothing special but you will see real life worship going on. Plus right now the street works and usual main rd traffic prevent any sense of serenity. In short don't go out of your way.

It is situated outside Isetan Mall next to central world. Hindu devotees come here normally. Not too crowdy.

This is a Hindu shrine in front of CentralWorld. Ganesha is considered a master of intellect and wisdom and a steady stream of worshipers can be seen visiting the shrine.

Just a small shrine in front of the large CentralWorld department store. It's not worth going here unless you are on your way to the department store

Came across the shrine when we were off to the Central World. Ganesh festival was going on while I was there with music and performances. It was a nice atmosphere in the evening with the smell of incense sticks, people offering prayers and music in the background.

Of course, the Thais will come and pay respect to Ganesha there. But the main, authentic Ganesha Shrine in Bangkok is not there. It is on Ratchadaphisek in Huaikhwang... More

This is one of the more colourful shrines in Bangkok. The assortment of elephants is fantastic to see.
