Fertility Shrine at Nai Lert Park

Fertility Shrine at Nai Lert Park Review

Hundreds of phalluses from small wooden carvings to big stone sculptures decorated with ribbons make this shrine quite unique. It honors Chao Mae Tuptim, a female fertility spirit. Women visit this shrine when they are trying to conceive, leaving offerings of lotus and jasmine, and if Bangkok gossip is worth anything, the shrine has a good success rate. To get there, go to the Nai Lert Park Hotel and walk to the end of the ground-level garage, where it's on your right. It's free and open 24 hours everyday, but best to visit before dusk.
