SINGAPORE - A mini coffin placed at a hawker centre in Singapore has attracted scores of people to "worship" it daily for good fortune, Sin Chew Daily reported.

The coffin, about a metre long and 30cm wide, was placed at the corner of the Tekka Market hawker centre and inside lies a statue of a female deity.

It was placed by temple owner Lim Ah Chai, 58, who said the coffin was the resting place of a female ghost known as "Nak".

"Many people in Thailand worship 'Nak' for good luck, health and love," he said.

It was reported that Lim brought the coffin back from Thailand two years ago and since then, many people had been paying homage to it.
