Spirit House

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.
