Some worshipers prayed in front of the Buddha statue

Shot at Shwemawdaw Pagoda, a Buddhist temple in Bago, Myanmar.

Walking around the precinct, I came to a hall. There were many halls where Buddha statues were stationed around the big pagoda. The worshippers rotated about the golden pagoda and prayed in the halls. Some worshipers were also seen in the hall which I called in. A golden Buddha statue was stationed at the back of the hall and the worshippers sat down in front of it. When I held my camera, one girl noticed me and looked back.

Looking closer, I found a clock hung on the wall above the statue. When I saw it, I became gloomy a little. And I wondered whether any worshippers prayed while having their eye on the clock. I thought the symbol of the industrialization was ill-fitted in the place of the worship. I wanted to feel the abyss of time in the holy place.
