Elephant are amazing!

the best is the Elephant, but if you have time, can quietly taste the buddha's spirit inside, also, you can ask for your fortune by the magic stick.

The reason for the title of this review is due to one fact and two ratios: The fact is that the museum is small and while it is very impressive in its own way, there is not much to see in terms of quantity. The ratios are 1- because the Erawan Museum is so far away from the BTS or... More

Erawan Muzuem is a very beautiful muzuem. The huge 3 headed elephant is very impressive and majestic. Eventhough the muzuem is small but the architecture is superb. The staircase to the top of the muzuem is through the leg of the elephant. The garden surrounding the muzuem is very green and beautiful for relaxing and quite environment. Lot of further... More

On the face of it, this monument is a celebration of Erawan, the three-headed elephant carrying the Hindu-god Indra. But it is also a lot more. Set in a beautiful water park exhibiting sculptures from Thai and Hindu mythologies, this huge elephant located on the southern outskirts of Bangkok is also a monument to Thai tradition and culture of handicraft...

This is probably the loveliest museum I've ever been to. From the outside, the 3-headed elephant structure is quite magnificent. There are three levels of the museum: Suvarnabhumi/underworld, in which you can't take any photos, "Earth," and then Heaven/cosmos, which is inside the elephant itself. (The top 2 levels are very different to one another but equally gorgeous.) My favorite... More

A Thai friend brought my family to the museum. It was exciting for my son as he loves elephant. The museum is structured in a tall building with 3 elephant heads connected. Upon entrance at 400baht per adult, you can pray at the shelter in front of the entrance to the elephant building. After praying, one can put the lotus... More

Sat in the middle of busy roads ( bit like Spaghetti Junction) is this amazing museum. From the outer white walls you enter at 400 bhat a lovely tranquil area of plants and water features. In the centre is the enormous three headed elephant. There are four levels inside to view, lots to take in, it's difficult to put into... More

This is a small museum in Samut Prakarn province but literally only a few kilometres beyond Bangkok's SE boundary. The basics are free parking, 400 Baht entry fee and 'headphone speaker tours' available plus refreshments. The joy though is the inside of the triple headed Elephant Shrine itself: a beautifully decorated staircase to a middle platform then a smaller staircase... More

This museum is located inside the statue of a three headed Elephant. A very unique place with beautiful Buddhist relics from around the world. Be warned that it is not easy to find a taxi back to city so do arrange your transport before you visit as it is quite far from the city center.

We went here with a group of friends who live in Bangkok, otherwise we would not have known about it. This museum provides a good look a Thai culture and great artifacts. The staff is kind and will explain lots of things as you go. Not a must see, but if you have the time and are in the area,... More
