It gets extremely busy with pilgrims from all over the country during the Ananda Pagoda Festival at the Ananda Temple in Bagan, Myanmar (Burma). This is a Buddhist monk at the temple. Photo taken in January 2014.
The Shwedagon Pagoda is contained within a large complex in Yangon, Myanmar (Burma). Extremely hot during the day, it’s best visited towards and into the evening. This is a photo of the reflections from a tessellated mirrored-wall within the complex.
