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

The Ganesh shrine could so easily be missed as it sits on the front plaza of Central World. A small but constant flow of worshippers makes you realise this is an important shrine for Hindu's. Well worth a few moments to take in this shrine and watch the dedication of the worshippers.

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.

Ganesha - the Elephant god - is highly revered by the Thais although it belongs to Hinduism. This modern Shrine operates as a sort of protective spirit for Central World Mall. 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 shrine, built on the side of the (then-named) World Trade Cenre shopping centre, is at the NE corner of the centre, a bit away from Isetan. Is it a tourist attraction? Generally, IMHO, no. Though maintained in good condition, this is not a destination unless you are a devotee of Ganesha (and maybe not even then). The important shrine... More

This small shrine is just outside Central World mall, so can be worth spending a few minutes as it somehow makes the busy atmosphere very calm with the incense sticks, roses and lotuses offered by devotees. So after a lot of shopping in the various malls,one can actually relax here!

This amazing shrine is one of two outside the front of the Central World Plaza. The shrine is a lovely small structure, surrounded by locals paying respects and going about their worship. That in itself is enough to make this an interesting and engaging attraction.
