Two women stood under the same umbrella in front of the big pagoda

The big pagoda towered in the center of the precinct. It is said this Shwemawdaw Pagoda was 114m high and the tallest pagoda in Myanmar. It meant that this pagoda is taller than the most famous pagoda, Shwedagon Pagoda, in Yangon. Like other pagodas, the surface was decorated with gold. The pagoda stretching into the sky shined under the strong sun. It was too bright to walk around the pagoda.

The precinct was not crowded. I saw some worshippers in spots. They circled around the pagoda in a clockwise direction. The women in this photo also went around. They stopped walking and one woman was about to take something out form her bag. Because there were some altars around the pagoda, they might just make an offering to one of the altars seen near them.
