Some women were sitting around the city pillars and praying

Shot at Lak Mueang in Bangkok, Thailand.

After praying in Erawan Shrine, I moved to the Grand Palace in Bangkok. And I entered a small shrine before visiting the palace. It was located just opposite the palace. The floor of the shrine got dented. And two golden pillars were erected in the center of the shrine. These were the city pillars called Lak Mueang.

This small shrine houses the city spirit deity called Chao Pho Lak Mueang and it is believed that people would get all sorts of lucky, for example, achieve prosperity, fulfillment in their work, avoid misfortune, and more when they pray here. This shrine is very popular with local people.

When I entered, some women were sitting on the floor and just praying. On the other hand, this kind of faith is uncommon in Japan. I have little occasion to see any tutelary deities being enshrined like this in Japan.
