Myanmar (Burma), Bagan, March 2012
Extract from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ananda_Temple : The Ananda Temple is one of four surviving temples in Bagan. The temple layout is in a cruciform with several terraces leading to a small pagoda at the top covered by an umbrella known as hti, which is the name of the umbrella or top ornament found in almost all pagodas in Myanmar. The temple is said to be an architectural wonder in a fusion of Mon and adopted Indian style of architecture, and has also been titled the "Westminster Abbey of Burma".
