Shot at Sule Pagoda in Yangon, Myanmar.
Tanking my sandals off, I entered the precinct of Sule Pagoda. It is necessary to take the shoes off in the entire precinct of any Buddhist temples in Myanmar. As soon as I entered, a golden tall pagoda emerged into my view. The composition is different from the Buddhist temples in Japan. In most cases, a tall pagoda is built in the center of the precinct. And the halls where the Buddha statues are stationed are arranged around the pagoda.
The structure was same here. Walking in one of the halls, many worshipers were seen. Some people sat in front of the Buddha statue and just prayed. And some people just sat while they chatted. The girls in this photo were the latter. All of them had their own smartphone. And they messed around with their gear. They seemed to be interested in praying so much. I thought the scene was seen everywhere in the world.
