Buddhist Monks Working In Pagoda

Buddhist monks doing sweeping pagoda

Many Buddhist monks did the sweeping the big pagoda

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

Came to another pagoda called Mahazedi Pagoda. Like Shwemawdaw Pagoda, there was a tall pagoda in the center of the precinct. Because it was built on a low hill, it seemed to be taller than Shwemawdaw Pagoda. Getting close, I found stairways were built on the pagoda and it was possible to climb up to the top of the pagoda. So I decided to climb up.

The stairway was steep. I moved forward while looking up. And I reached the high place before I knew. No tall architectures around here and the place had a great view. The woods spread around the pagoda and other pagodas were seen in the woods. In the meantime, I remembered that I hate heights. And I felt afraid. Looking down the stairway I climbed. Many Buddhist monks were there. They were just doing the sweeping. Apparently, none of them had no head for heights. They worked with vivacity in the altitude. It might be not afraid of going to a high altitude with the help of Buddha.
