The shrine is a landmark located on Rajaprasong Intersection, in front of Central World shopping complex. The shrine has been moved from the original position for recent renovations.

In Hinduism, Trimurti is the portrayal of the three Gods: Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. The concept is very similar to the  concept of Trinity in Christianity. Many Thais claim to here to whisper to be matched with a foreigner, and the other way around for many foreigners to be matched with a Thai partner. The shrine is so crowded on a Thursday night as believed to be the night of Trimurti.
