There was an altar in a corner of Tha Tien Market

I was walking around Tha Tien Market in Bangkok. Although the shops in the market were open, it was deserted. No bustling was seen here. Yet it was a good opportunity to ask the shop clerks what the articles for sale were because the clerks seemed to have free time. They were often unfamiliar to me.

Wandering the passage, I came to a small square in the market. A big altar was built on the edge of the square and a golden statue was stationed. I wondered what kind of deity it was. Looking at the base, something was written in Chinese characters. According to it, it seemed to be a guardian deity of this area.

Apparently, this deity was enshrined in the hope of the prosperity of this market. It seemed from the current state of the market, the deity was getting downtime.
