Following his death, his body was taken to the temple to begin the process of burying his remains.

But two months after his death his followers made the decision to exhume his body, as part of a traditional Buddhist ceremony.

When the body was removed from the coffin, his lackeys were shocked to find a “smile” on the dead monk's face – adding the body had barely decayed.

According to The Mirror, Pian appeared to be smiling when his masked followers paraded him through the crowd of spectators.

Those attending the tradition snapped pictures of the incredible moment and shared the photos on social media.

Reports said the monks had removed his body to fit him with new, clean robes.
