Photographer's Note

An impressive shrine that the majority of tourists pass by without stopping, as it is located at the foot of one of the most visited temples of the region, without any specific indication.

The exterior is squarish, rather flat and as banal as can be, but once passed the small doorway, what a surprise to discover this lying buddha, filling the space almost completely, with only a narrow passage to walk around.

Surely one of the highlights of Bagan, ignored by most visitors, as I was alone inside for at least half an hour, while buses of tourists were climbing the steps of the adjacent temple (arriving much too late, 45 minutes after the sunrise) to have a panoramic overview of the plaines, before hopping back in the buses for another temple.
