Already 1200 photos on TE, difficult to believe the time goes so fast..
Another view of Mrauk U. I showed already similar photo. But to get there means many hours of flight, then many hours of boat trip and finally climbing the hill.. a bit of trouble. So I hope you wouldn't be bored with another shot. This one is taken after sunset.
Due to its proximity to the Bay of Bengal, Mrauk U developed into an important regional trade hub, acting as both a back door to the Burmese hinterland and also as an important port along the eastern shore of the Bay of Bengal. It became a transit point for goods such as rice, ivory, elephants, tree sap and deer hide from Ava in Burma, and of cotton, slaves, horses, cowrie, spices and textiles from Bengal, India, Persia and Arabia. Alongside Pegu and later Syriam, it was one of the most important ports in Burma till the eighteenth century.
The city also traded with non-Asian powers such as Portugal and then the Dutch East India Company of the Netherlands.
At its zenith, Mrauk U was the centre of a kingdom which stretched from the shores of the Ganges river to the western reaches of the Ayeyarwaddy River.
As Mrauk U and her kingdom prospered, the kings, ministers and peasants built many pagodas and temples around the town to reflect their faith. Thus, Mrauk U houses a rich collection of temples and pagodas second only to the town of Bagan, Most of Mrauk U's temples were constructed of hewn stone bricks, unlike the mud and clay bricks of Bagan.

Ciao cara Itchy Feet
Congratulations on your 1200th photo, how lovely it is to see your photos and have you as my friend. I hope one day that I can meet you face to face. What a beautiful way to celebrate this milestone, with a truly exquisite photo. Very Leo-esque! I love the mist, the sharpness and the richness of colour. Excelent job, my dear.
Thanks for sharing, un caro abbraccio

la nebbia avvolge tratti della scena e con la luce che filtra rende al meglio il luogo.
Abitazioni e templi immersi in questa lussuregginte natura,

Wow, 1200. Will I have the patience to get there? This is a less stunning view of this place but absolutely worth a picture. The fog flows beautifully between the hills and there are enough stupas visible to make the view very exotic and beautiful. The light, with just a slight touch of pink, is very nice.

forse avrei preferito un taglio meno stretto, ma l'immagine trasmette comunque una suggestiva atmosfera.
Complimenti per il traguardo della 1200th.

J'aime beaucoup cette vue classique sur les nombreux temples qui garnissent les collines du Myanmar.La légère brume qui adoucit les formes est très photogénique.

A nice crop into a panorama format, and fine details.
Well done Malgo and congratulations on reaching this milestone!

This place in Myanmar is really unique and magic
probably a place where one seats and just stay there as long as possible in the serenity
A good post, an excellent contribution to the beauty of the place
All the best

In order to enjoy this magnificent sight, one may have some difficulties to overcome and one may be a bit longer on the road than is desirable. Personally I find this a unique spectacle.
The picture is somewhat mysterious but exciting, exotic, full of atmosphere and an ideal mixture of wonderful nature and interesting monuments.
I look out for more pictures of this region in Myanmar.
Best regards, Paul

Congratulations on your 1200th post! And this one, according to your note, was really hard work to achieve!
But it was worth it. The light is just lovely and the mist hanging low in the trees and around the buildings is very beautiful. Excellent composition, lovely colours and stunning detail.
And a very interesting note too!
ChrisJ (96654) 2012-02-22 19:42
Not boring at all! A superb evening shot of this place & still with a soft hint of pastel colors from the setting sun. Excellent shadow detail & nice repetition of the pagodas and coconut palm trees. Good sharpness & shadow detail. Tfs!

A classic dreamy image from Mrauk U, the one that makes me dream to go to Burma once. The mist & fog makes this amazing!

What a milestone. Congratulations on this your 1200th post!
It is a fine shot for such an occasion; your high pov gives a great impression of the land below, full of mystery from its swirling mists and half-hidden buildings. You have used fine compositional skills and given a good sense of depth.
My warm regards,

Such a pleasure to see this wonderful image of this mistic landscape, as we know, this area are well known here on TE, from the like of Elaine, Andreas, Vince...Now you. I wish I will have the pleasure of returning to Burma, especially for this place. A beautiful place worth the trip.

beautiful p.o.v. and landscape. magic mist all around.
klapek (104) 2012-05-07 13:07
To zdjęcie ma w sobie jakąś magię, myślę, że za sprawą świetnie dobranej pory dnia. Panoramiczny kadr, który nigdy łatwy nie jest, ładnie zagrał z pasmami mgły unoszącymi się nad dolinkami.
Pozdrawiam i życzę kolejnych wojaży,
