Thousands of people swamped a rubber garden in the southern province Binh Duong Wednesday to see a termitarium people said resembled a sitting Buddha.
Workers from the Ben Cat Rubber Company in Ben Cat District's An Tay Commune said the nest appeared a couple of days ago and formed the shape of a 50-centimeter Buddha on Wednesday.
People from as far and wide as Ho Chi Minh City flocked to see the nest and worship at the site.
Traffic has been chaos in the area ever since, police said.
Local authorities decided to send the termitarium to To Long Hung Pagoda, but the crowds gathering around the rubber plantation have not shrunk.
