Entrance to the Monastery Yoke Sone Kyaung
Myanmar (Burma), Salay, March 2012

Salay is famous for its Yoke Sone Kyaung (a 19th century wooden monastery) with exquisite wooden carvings. The whole building is built of wood and is a fine example of monastic architecture of the late Konbaung Period. The main attraction of the monastery is the decorative wooden panels made by the master carvers of the period whose meticulous workmanship is in many ways superior to those of later periods: http://www.myanmarpolestar.com/en/travel_bagan.htm
