Wat Ban Chiang Pheng (วัดบ้านเชียงเพ็ง) in Yasothon is very popular with people looking for lottery numbers. A 200 year old boat was found nearby and brought to the temple. But people don’t come to visit out of historical interest. They come to rub the wood to find lottery numbers. It only needs one person to win big and then everyone wants to try their luck. The temple is very crowded in the days leading up to the lottery draw on the 1st and 16th of every month.
