My Favourite Bangkok building #4

In the chest of Erawan, the three-headed elephant, is a large, exquisite, merit-making chamber. Visitors get to this chamber by either walking up a spiral staircase inside the right back leg of Erawan, or by taking a lift inside its left back leg.

 

Its main Buddha icon is a modern, beautiful, bronze/gold creation that seems to me to deliberately exhibit male and female characteristics.

 

In glass cases around the chamber are numerous carved stone Buddha icons that are 1500-600 years old and, certainly, priceless.

 

The ceiling of the chamber is rather zanily decorated with what, I believe, is an illustration of The Cosmos.

 

The chamber is able to hold about 50 people at a time.
