During our visit to Myanmar (Burma) we visited one or two Temples!
This is the Mahamuni Paya in Mandalay primarily famous for housing what many Burmese believe to be one of only 5 Buddha statues created in his lifetime. It is a splendidly gilded temple, as are most of the larger temples, and I tried to show the richness of the decor in this image. The guy criss-crossing the corridor is using a traditional broom with a more modern version of the dustpan
(Images of various Buddha statues to come at a later date).
Many thanks for your generosity in responses to this series, so very much appreciated.
Have a safe and happy New Year's Eve/Hogmanay celebration,
