Fodor's Expert Review Fertility Shrine at Nai Lert Park

Pathumwan Religious Building/Site/Shrine

Hundreds of phalluses, from small wooden carvings to big stone sculptures decorated with ribbons, place this shrine honoring the female fertility spirit Chao Mae Tuptim in a category all its own. Women visit the shrine when trying to conceive, leaving offerings of lotus and jasmine. If Bangkok gossip is correct, the shrine has a good success rate. To get here, go to the Swissotel Nai Lert Park and walk to the end of the ground-level garage; the shrine will be on your right. Though open all the time, it's best visited before dusk.
