Gilded Stupas and Buddhas

After viewing the main golden stupa, spend a few hours within the smaller shrines that house hundreds of Buddhas of all pose and dress. Many tourists like to visit at dusk or dawn when the weather is cooler and the light is gentle. I went there midday when sun was relentless, but the crowds had thinned. It is a quieting and powerful experience that set the tone for my travels through Myanmar.
