Photographer's Note

As I did spend a few days in Yangon before coming offshore, I decided to go to the Shwedagon Pagoda for a second visit. I was there at sunrise and by the time I arrived it was already full of simple people trying to be in peace with the world and themselves.

Being the most sacred pagoda of the Theravada tradition, Shwedagon is a mystic place and I can not believe that even the most agnostic person would not be captivated by the beauty of this jewel of the Buddhists.

In WS, I am posting a day light version of the pagoda’s corner shown in here. In WS2, another pagoda’s detail.
