Deserted Spirit House

Spirit houses sit next to almost every building in Bangkok- be it an office tower, house, hotel or condo tower, you will find a spirit a house next to it.

And with the rate of tearing down buildings to make way for new high rise structures, the deserted spirit house is a fairly common sight. I gather nobody wants the perceived bad luck associated with tearing down a spirit house and have been keeping an eye on a few of the deserted spirit houses in my neighborhood to see their fate.


About faranginbangkok

I began working in Bangkok during 2008- a time that featured a great deal of political unrest in Thailand and particularly Bangkok. I had lived in San Francisco for 15 years and was working on a project in Thailand. Generally, I spent 2 weeks in Bangkok and then 3-4 weeks in San Francisco. Did Bangkok begin to feel like home? Yes, and No. Bangkok and the Thai culture forced me to feel many things, the change in culture and environment was so dramatic it forced the decision- embrace or ignore. I embraced and made Bangkok my home and base in 2009. I have enjoyed living in Bangkok, experiencing Thailand and the entire ASEAN region. I moved to Singapore in 2016...fallen behind on this blog since.
