Thai dancers

Thai dancers at the Erawan Shrine which was built in 1956 to appease the supposed evil forces that were taking the lives of construction workers and causing other calamities in the construction sites happening at the time in the area. The misfortunes were caused, it seemed, by starting the construction on an unfavorable date. After the shrine was erected, construction deaths stopped and now the shrine is one of the most revered in Bangkok.
