Photographer's Note

Staying in Sagaing makes it easy to jump on a motorbike taxi and take in some sightseeing. Mingun is 30 mins drive from Sagaing and would have boasted the world's largest pagoda if it ever had been finished. Two earthquakes damaged the pagoda in 1839, as you can see there has been an half-hearted attempt to repair some of the cracks. Towards the end of the afternoon as the sun goes down the unfinished pagoda glows red,- the novices give some scale.
