Pattaya, Thailand – In the peaceful woods of Takhiantia in east Pattaya, an enigmatic Lord Ganesh shrine has emerged, drawing a steady flow of pilgrims in search of spiritual solace and blessings. This magnificent Lord Ganesh deity, revered for its substantial size, has become a focal point of faith for both local residents and foreign visitors.

The historical significance of this divine site was brought to light by nearby villagers, who shared the story of Petty Officer First Class Jaruwat Thimthiang and his mother, Mrs. Kuakul Witiphon, the landowners who consecrated the site as a sacred place. They named it “Hattakam Thin Thai” or Thailand’s Local Heritage, allowing people in the area to engage in religious practices for auspiciousness. Around 2019, during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, the site was mysteriously abandoned, falling into disrepair.



Recently, however, fate seemed to intervene as curious individuals stumbled upon the site. Intrigued by its history and seeking hope in challenging times, people have returned to pay their respects, leading to a growing number of pilgrims. Particularly during holidays, devoted individuals flock to the ancient Lord Ganesh shrine, seeking its divine blessings.

This site has now become a beacon of hope for those in search of spiritual support, seeking refuge in the powerful presence of Lord Ganesh, the Hindu God. As news of this mystifying discovery spreads, the location has become a place of pilgrimage for both locals and foreign tourists, with many traveling from distant places to pay homage to the sacred shrine. Offerings of fruits, red soda, milk, joss sticks, candles, flowers, and garlands are made as devotees worship Lord Ganesh.



Visitors believe in whispering their deepest wishes and desires into the mice at the site, as they are said to carry these wishes to the revered Lord Ganesh. The serene ambiance and majestic surroundings of the sacred site encourage introspection and spiritual rejuvenation, making it an ideal place for seekers of peace and connection to the divine.
