Bangkok – Krung Thep Maka Nakhon, “The city of angels, the great city, the residence of the Emerald Buddha, the impregnable city of God Indra, the grand capital of the world endowed with nine precious gems, the happy city, abounding in an enormous Royal Palace that resembles the heavenly abode where reigns the reincarnated god, a city given by Indra and built by Vishnukarn.”
I was intrigued by this structure but couldn’t fathom what is it? I tried checking with the locals but was unable to decipher their language and they in turn couldn’t converse in English. Finally when I met Noong Noong (our local guide) I found the answer. It is a shrine, shaped like a house and found in most houses, shopping malls and offices across Thailand. This edifice is called The Spirit House.
