    Myanmar boasts the highest population of practicing Buddhists in the world, and its ancient city of Bagan is commonly known as the “sea of temples.” The best way to explore this city is to walk through its narrow streets and among the temples and pagodas where you’ll come across moments of pure peace and beauty like this one.

    Aside from being visually stunning, henna (also known as mehendi) is an important and significant ritual in many countries. In India, henna symbolizes the deep bond between loved ones and is often applied to a bride’s hands and arms by family members on her wedding day. Henna’s intricate designs and deep coloring are believed to attract good energy, relieve stress, and ward off evil.
