Phaungdawoo Pagoda
Myanmar (Burma), Inle Lake, Ywama Village, March 2012

The Phaungdawoo Pagoda is one of the most recognized shrines in Myanmar. In fact, it is the most sacred pagoda in the whole southern Shan State. It is found in Inle Lake, in the main boat landing in Ywama. The name 'Phaungdawoo' means ‘front of the raft’ in Burmese. The Phaungdawoo is home to five Buddha images, which were said to be donated by King Alaung Sithu. The pagoda was built for the purpose of keeping these Buddha images: http://www.visit-mekong.com/myanmar/inle-lake/attractions.htm

Gold leaves Paulina. The devotees contribute to the monastery in gold leaves.
