Termite " Buddha "

Thousands of Vietnamese have converged on a rubber farm after the discovery of a termite's nest resembling the image of Buddha by rubber tappers in the province of Bing Duong two days ago.

The 40-centimetre (16-inch) tall nest resembles Buddha sitting in meditation posture. Visitors believe the land that the nest sits is a sacred land of Buddhism.
