Man And Ye Le Pagoda

Ye Le Pagoda on the other side of boats

The Ye Le Pagoda was seen on the other side of the boats

Shot at Kyauktan Township in Myanmar.

Leaving from the market, I came to another wharf. It was larger than the wharf I saw beside the market. The landing pier stretched into the river. And some boats, probably passenger ferries, were docked. They might wait for the departure time. Some passengers with their burdens were seen waiting on every boat.

A man sat still on the bow of one of the boat. And a golden pagoda, which was built on the island in the middle of the river, was seen on the other side of him.

The pagoda called Ye Le Pagoda is old like other famous pagodas in Myanmar. It is said that it was constructed in the third century BCE. Many worshipers visit the pagoda. Yet the boats docked here didn't connect the bank and the island. These boats were connected with another everyday world, not the holy place.
