Everyone dreams of winning the lottery – right?
Maybe even more so in Nahkon Phanom, which lies to the north of Thailand on the border with neighbours Laos.
Why you may ask? Well a magical tree has been uncovered following excavation work in the area.
Claims that three people have won over 100,000 baht in lottery prizes have raised great interests in Ton Takhian.
Lottery ticket vendors have set up shop and are said to be doing “a roaring trade”.
Locals have claimed they offered kindness to the tree and the number 45 appeared, although it is unclear how the number actually became visible.
“San Chao Mae Takhian Thong” is a shrine dedicated to the spirit “Mae Takhian Thong”. It is located in a Buddhist temple in Nakhorn Pathom district.
