    Indra (Hindu god), known as Sakra or Phra-In in Buddhist texts, he is the king of deities in Tavatimsa (Daowadueng) Heaven, the 7th realm of 3 worlds or 31 realms of existences.

    Whenever the king Sakra wants to go somewhere, one male deity named ‘Erawan’ will transform into huge white elephant (with 33 heads in Buddhist scripture, but 3 heads in Hindu mythology), the vehicle of Sakra (Phra-In or Indra). This huge white elephant is called three-headed elephant or Chang-Sam-Sien or Chang Erawan.
