Phra Trimurti (The God of Love)

Phra Trimurti??Shrine (The God of Love) @ Central World (Bangkok)

Located in front of Isetan at Central World on Ratchadamri Road is the Trimurti status, The God of Love. The deity is a combination form of three prominent deities of Hinduism, viz. Brahma (the Creator), Vishnu (the Preserver), and Shiva (the Destroyer).

Thai people believe that the Phra Trimurti will help ?? them to solve all love problems. It is gaining in popularity among Thai teenagers and young couples seeking for true love in recent years .

It was once built directly across the Erawan Shrine (Four-Faced Buddha ) to offset the enormous power of Brahma and to improve the business of former World Trade Center. However, the feng shui advice did not work.

The site was Phetchabun Palace in the old days. The shrine was relocated to another corner of the building by the new management of Central World. Now, Phra Trimurti, the God of Love, stands gracefully in the middle of a soothing water feature next to the Ganesh Shrine in front of Isetan with a constant flow of young devotee.

 Another Legend told : 

The sanskrit "Trimurti" means "three forms". In Hindu culture, the depiction of Trimurti shows three heads on one neck representing the "Hindu Trinity"—Brahma (the creator), Vishnu (the preserver) and Shiva (the destroyer).

About "God of Love"

In Thailand, Phra Trimurti (Thai: พระตรีมูรติ) is also regarded as God of Love, partly because the renowned Trimurti Shrine in Bangkok has become the Holy Land for people questing for love.
There is also a story about how Phra Trimurti obtains the title as God of Love:
Once, the Hindu Trinity—Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva—heard and was curious about a beatiful and virginal fairy with high magic power and reputation. Three Gods transformed themselves into three handsome men, going to visit the fairy for testing her ability.
They were well treated by the beautiful fairy, but showed no willingness to leave after finishing the meal. The fairy asked why they still stayed; the three Lords, intending to play with the fairy, frivolously said, "What we want is your body."
The fairy, instead of getting furious at their words for sexual implication, agreed their request without any hesitation.
She said, "It's no problem that I give you my body, on condition that you should be transformed into new-born babies.
In fact, the fairy had figured out their real identity and true intentions. She immediately transformed this three handsome men into babies, and began breastfeeding.
Three babies, after swallowing breast milk, developed a deep and pure love toward the fairy, without any hint of sexuality.
The fairy did give her body to them, by breastfeeding. With great mother's love, she took them as her own children, holding them softly and sweetly.
The fairy really hoped to raise babies to maturity, but consorts of the three Lords required the fairy return their husbands because the world needed the ruling of three Lords.
The fairy heartbreakingly changed three babies back to their original form. Three Lords then combined themselves into Trimurti and worshipped their mother. The fairy is a symbol of extremely pure love, hence comes the concept that Phra Trimurti, the combination of Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva, is also respected as God of Love.
