Bangkok, Thailand – Amid glittering luxury shopping malls and the constant ebb and flow of Bangkok’s congested roads, a small white temple stands in the heart of Thailand’s frantic capital.
Every day, a steady stream of worshippers comes to sit before the marble shrine and pray for the same elusive aspiration – love.
The temple itself is not an escape from the city. Standing proudly in the midst of it all, it provides a constant reminder that despite the crowds, finding the right person is a universal endeavour.
On Thursday evenings, the steady stream turns into a torrent, with worshippers lining up shoulder to shoulder. The temple attracts people of all ages and backgrounds, all sexes and persuasions, but demands a similar routine from all.
They buy some roses, light some incense sticks, and recite a prayer written on a small piece of paper while gazing up at the gleaming temple and it’s resident golden statue, Trimultari, the God of Love.
