Buddhist Monk In Corridor

A Buddhist monk stood in the corridor

Shot at Thanlyin Myo Ma Market in Thanlyin, Myanmar.

Walked down a flight of stairs, I walked the corridor on the ground floor again. Although many goods were displayed there, few shoppers walked. The tranquil atmosphere wafted. In the meantime, I found a figure coming from over there. For better or worse, it was not a shopper. It was a Buddhist monk wearing a Kasaya.

He stopped in front of a clothing store. Yet he didn't seem to come here to buy something to wear. After a while, a store staff came out of the store and gave something to the older monk. The monk came to this market to ask alms. The major religion in Myanmar is Buddhism. So it was common to see Buddhist monks and nuns during walking around. Because they didn't do any productive activities, they asked alms in the city.
