Today all is quiet at the Brahma Shrine at Caesars Palace. But yesterday, the authentic replica of one of Thailand's most popular shrines was surrounded with celebration as the hotel re-dedicated the shrine, located on a newly built courtyard on the Roman Plaza, with costumed Thai dancers and the release of doves. The bronze-cast and gold-plated shrine is associated with good fortune and prosperity and visitors often leave tokens of gratitude ranging from flowers to money.
