People come to the Guan Yin Shrine that is located on Yaowarat Road to pray for blessings from this goddess of mercy. The embellished Guan Yin statue reflects the artistic style of the Tang Dynasty. It was transferred from China to preside at this shrine which was built by Thian Fah Foundation, established over a hundred years ago to provide medical support to the poor. The colorful mural paintings depict Chinese values and style of art. This indeed is a place of faith as well as art and culture.
