Many Buddha Statues And One Woman

One woman sat in front of many Buddha statues in the hall

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

Leaving Taukkyan War Cemetery, my taxi started to head for Bago again. The cemetery was the only place where he wanted to take me in his own right. And I arrived at Bago when the taxi stopped next time.

The car stopped in front of the gate in a narrow way. It was the entrance to Shwemawdaw Pagoda, which is the tallest pagoda in Myanmar. Paid the entrance fee, I entered the precinct without shoes. It was a rule to enter the holy place without shoes in this country. The composition of the temple was similar to the famous pagoda, Shwedagon Pagoda. A golden pagoda was erected in the center of the precinct and many halls were built around it.

Walking around, I entered one of the halls. Many Buddha statues were stationed inside. And one woman sat in front of them alone.
