The big Buddha statue lied about under the strong sun

Shot at Myathalyaung Paya, a Buddhist temple in Bago, Myanmar.

Leaving Shwemawdaw Pagoda, I came to another Buddhist temple called Myathalyaung Paya. This temple was famous for the big Reclining Buddha. As soon as entering the precinct, I could see the big Buddha statue. It was lying about under the strong sun. Because there was no roof above the statue, the sun shined down on it relentlessly.

Its eyes were not closed and had a grim look on its face. So it seemed to think about something difficult. Or it might be bored with the hotness. The sun also hotted the ground around the statue. So it was hard to walk barefoot.

While standing up to the hotness at the bottom of the foot, I held my camera. Of course, it didn't cast an eye on me. A small jar was placed in front of it. The dead incense sticks were stuck in the jar.
