Shan Buddhas in the Nga Phe Kyaung Monastery
Myanmar (Burma), Inle Lake, Ywama Village, March 2012
The Nga Phe Kyaung is an attractive wooden monastery built on stilts over the lake at the end of the 1850s. Aside from its collection of Shan Buddhas the monastery may be of interest to visit because its monks have taught a few of the many cats living with them to jump through hoops. Therefore, it is better known as the Jumping Cat Monastery.
