PhotoStory 0002: Buddha in Ananda Temple in Bagan (Myanmar/Burma)

Buddha in Ananda Temple in Bagan (Myanmar/Burma)

Photo taken 2006-12-01, (dec 1st) at Ananda Temple in Bagan, ??? State, Myanmar (Burma)

Bagan is a historic town in Myanmar (Burma) witch is famous for a overwhelming number of temples, stupas and other religious buildings from the past. Most are buddist of course, as Myanmar is a country very dominated by buddist religion. I think there was only one hindu temple among the others. Ananda Temple is one of the most impressive of the many thousands of structures… The guides told me there was over 4400 stuctures in/around Bagan, without me counting/controlling those figures…

The photo is of one of 4 golden, standing buddhas in Ananda Temple, probably the eastern buddha of the four. I took the photo without flash and keept it still by holding it still on the floor, - trying to get both the buddha and the 2 women praying & putting sacrifice in front of it…

It was very peaceful in the temples, and my guide drove me around between the sites in a horsewagon,- whitch was the normal type of taxi/transportation in Bagan.
