The series about the Hang Pagoda, near Tra Vinh, starts with the flower of the Sal or Shala tree (Shorea Robusta Roxb) as it is the type of tree under which the Buddha gave his last sermon and drew his last breath.

Also according to Buddhist tradition, it is said that Queen Māyā of Sakya gave birth to the Buddha under a sal tree in a garden.

The flowers of the Sal tree have two kinds of pollen, fertile pollen in the ring stamen, and sterile pollen in the hood stamen. The flower does not have nectar. So, to attract the pollinators, it has a strong perfume.

V2 shows the entrance to Hang pagoda and V3 the path in the wood leading to the pagoda.

Three very different images from this pagoda complex, the exotic blooms in V 1 so eye catching and the tunnel in V 2 so well exposed showing detail, and without overexposing the distant scene beyond.
