PHOTOS: Buddhist monks perform ceremony at damaged Erawan Shrine

Five Buddhist monks performed a religious ceremony at Erawan Shrine in Bangkok this morning to bless and send off the spirits of those killed by the horrific bombing on Monday evening.

At least three relatives of the deceased, including Malaysian national Neoh Ee Ling who lost five family members in the bomb attack, gathered at the shrine this morning at 9am.

The sculpture of the Hindu god “Phra Phrom” was damaged in the blast – the chin on one of the four faces was blown off.

The pavilion around the sculpture sustained only slight damage.

Authorities said the sculpture would be repaired on Monday.
