Thousands pray to 'holy' rock

- +

Thousands of people from around Thailand have converged on a temple in the northeastern province of Surin since Thursday night, asking a large "sacred" rock for good fortune ahead of the national lottery draw on Friday afternoon. 

Amnuat Klanarong, a village headman in tambon Ram, said a villager found the sleeping-elephant-shaped rock in the middle of a pond near his house about a month ago.

The villager placed the rock outside his house, and later gave it to Wat Ban Barom Suk after seeing it shining at night and mysterious monks emerging nearby.
