It is a little out the place but it wasn't difficult to get to. We took the BTS all the way to Bearing (last stop) and then got a taxi which was a nominal cost. On the way back we crossed the highway via the overpass and got the bus back to the BTS station. We got the 102 however... More

Great temple, statues and gardens. We made it there from Bangkok central in about 1 hour by car (lots of traffic!). The size of the three headed elephant statue is outstanding, so is the temple under it. Totally worth the visit (though the entrance fee for foreigners was a bit expensive)!

Been here several times now and never fail to be absolutely mesmerised by the sheer creativity and breathtaking beauty of the craftsmanship, colours, and ambience of the place, both inside and in the sculpted gardens surrounding the magnificent elephant museum. Its totally out of the way and the only way to get there is by taxi / uber, but so... More

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
