Residents of a rubber plantation in the Yan Ree subdistrict of Kabin Buri, Prachinburi province, Thailand, yesterday came across an unusual termite mound resembling a Buddha image. The termite mound discovery, which emerged from the ground facing east and had a pointed shape similar to a Buddha image, sparked excitement among the locals, leading them to believe it would bring good luck.

The termite mound’s unique appearance attracted the attention of fortune-seekers, who didn’t hesitate to light incense and make merit, asking for good fortune. They sprinkled flour around the termite mound to uncover numbers, hoping for potential lottery numbers.

The locals’ efforts were rewarded when clear numbers were discovered, including a three-digit number, 275, and a two-digit number, 20. The height of the termite mound, measured at 20 inches or 51 centimetres, was also interpreted as a potential number for the lottery, 51.

Kriangkrai Krua Kaew, a 60 year old rubber plantation worker and rubber tapper, shared the peculiar termite mound discovery. He noticed the Buddha-like termite mound around two weeks ago while tapping rubber in the early morning.
