There are many halls in the precincts of Shwedagon Paya in Yangon, which houses parts of the bodies of the Buddha and the three bodhisattvas who appeared in the world before him. Each of the halls houses a statue of Buddha, and worshippers can be seen in each hall. In this hall, there was also a large statue of Buddha, and there were worshippers praying.
If you look closely, you can see many people who were not paying their respects. Here, too, there was a parent and child with exhausted expressions resting in front of the statue. It wasn't just this father and son. There were many locals who seemed to be simply relaxing in the shade rather than paying their respects. It seemed that this place was a place of worship and a place of rest at the same time.
