Phayao villagers praise water cleansing lucky tree

Villagers in Phayao are praising a lucky tree that is said to cleanse water in its vicinity.

The tree, that auspiciously also has three trunks, is located in Moo 2 Huai Kaeo, Phu Krom Yao District and is said to be possessed by the spirit of a goddess who brings good fortune to those who visit it.

In a surprising supernatural twist, the villagers claim that the water in the vicinity of the tree is cool and clear unlike other water nearby, a sure sign that the tree is indeed lucky.

The villagers have set up seating and tables around the tree so as to assist pilgrims wishing to make merit with the tree becoming a popular attraction in the sub-district and surrounding areas.
