At the southern end of Inle Lake, Burma, is the Phaung Daw Oo Pagoda. There are five statues fo Buddha here, each covered with layer upon layer of gold leaf which has been stuck on as a token of veneration, and so thick is this gilding that the statues are more like balls of gold than images of Buddha.

From September to October each year, an 18-day festival is held, during which four of the Buddha images are placed on a replica of a royal barge and taken throughout Inle Lake. One image always remains at the temple. The elaborately decorated barge is towed from village to village along the shores of the lake in clockwise fashion, and the four images reside at the main monastery in each village for the night.

Sometime in the 1960s during a particularly windy day, when the waves were high on the lake, the barge carrying the images capsized, and the images tumbled into the lake. It was said that they could not recover one image, but that when they went back to the monastery, the missing image was miraculously sitting in its place.

For such an enlightened religion no-one could tell me why women were not allowed to approach the Buddhas.

v2 is a closer view of the Buddhas. v3 the Pagoda/Temple itself, built on the lake.

Three excellent shots of the Pagoda, it's interior and the golden buddhas: the building itself is so well captured and so exotic in structure, and the interior is so richly and colourfully decorated, and quite at odds with the general poverty of the country itself, but a testimony to the importance of their religion in society.

But I have just spent a merry half hour trawling the net for an explanation of V1, and cannot find anything! In some branches of Buddhism, women are viewed as unable to achieve full enlightenment, but Burmese Buddhism seems to be quite relaxed. I hope you can find an answer.

Well put, Dave.

And no kidding about the Buddhas looking more like balls of gold! Thanks for V2. They look like gold plated snowmen there, don't they??

Just read Rende's comment about the Buddlist scriptures. I reckon once again - like in other religions - the human interpretation of religion has blurred aspects of and superceded what the religion is actually about.

V3 is stunning!

Great upload and thanks for the write-up.

Like several others, I think V3 is excellent.

I have read that women are not considered to be inferior to men, but "unclean" due to their natural monthly cycles, and that "although the monastery is open to all for veneration, only men are permitted to place gold leaf on the images".

Quote: Great write up Dave! The reason for no Ladies is because they should be at home cooking and cleaning, excellent set and I agree that V3 should be the lead, it is stunning, makes me want to visit Burma even more.

Love the images and the narrative. I think V3 for me is especially outstanding
My mum told me that in times past when the Burmese wanted to build a pagoda, the monks would request for people to help by giving them their gold. People would line up and throw their gold jewelry into a pit.
