The Virgin Mary statue outside the Saigon Notre-Dame Basilica. This is located in the center of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. It was constructed by French colonialists over 100 years ago. During October 2005, the statue was reported to have shed tears... attracting thousands of people and forcing authorities to stop traffic around the Cathedral. However, the top clergy of the Catholic Church in Vietnam confirmed that the Virgin Mary statue in front of a cathedral did not shed tears, which nevertheless failed to disperse the crowd flocking to the statue days after the incident. The reported 'tear' flowed down the right cheek of the face of the statue.

I didn't see any tears when I was there.
