2 Wireless Road, Pathumwan, Nai Lert Park Hotel, Bangkok, Thailand, 10330
One of the more unusual sights in Bangkok is the Tuptim Shrine, and even more peculiar is its position on the grounds of this fancy hotel. Beneath the trees behind the garage, by the side of the Saen Saeb Canal, you'll find a traditional Thai spirit house festooned with garlands and offerings - and surrounded by large and small statues of penises. These are in a variety of shapes and sizes, and some even have legs and a tail. Many are painted bright red or orange. The origins of the shrine are uncertain, but it was dedicated to the spirit who was supposed to live in the large tree. - AH
