Boddhi Tataung Pagoda Complex
Myanmar (Burma), Monywa, March 2012

The Boddhi Tataung Pagoda Complex is a sprawling site filled with Buddha statues, bodhi trees, and pagodas, established by the Bodhi Tataung sayadaw in the 1960s.

From http://www.nevworldwonders.com/2011/11/10-wonder-bodi-tataung-standing-buddha.html :
"According to inscriptions on-site, there are now something in the region of nine thousand trees and over ten thousand Buddha images. Ten thousand does not seem to be an exaggeration: there are a lot of Buddhas around. Entire fields of sitting Buddhas are scattered around the overall Bodhi Tataung site. There must be something in the region of a thousand sitting Buddhas alone surrounding the Aung Setkyar Pagoda that sits near the foot of the Standing Buddha statue. The numbers are overwhelming, and the experience of walking through an overgrown field filled with row after row of near-identical sitting Buddhas is quite a spooky one, especially as each statue has a small stone inscription at the front, giving the scene the feel of a forgotten graveyard."

What wonderful experiences you have had.. Did you do the trip on your own...It seems as though you have seen so much that would not have been possible on a guided tour.
This is incredible... what a capture. and, your notes are grand... I look forward to your posts. Super subject, colors, lighting and presentation.
Bravo

We travelled with a group Barb. In countries where we don't speak the language we always choose for a guided tour.
Thanks for the nice comment!
