A Tiny Temple In the Heart Of Myanmar

A small temple nestled among hundreds of temples in Bagan, Myanmar. I especially liked this one for its original frescoes and intimate feel. The only disappointing features were the Buddhas. While the rest of the temple was wonderfully original, the Buddhas were not, they were made of plaster, the faces painted a horrid shade of pink and their features resembled a store mannequin as opposed to a religious relic. Our guide explained that the original Buddhas were destroyed over the centuries, but I had to believe that the replacement could have looked a little better than it did. That being said, the rest of the temple more than made up for it.

I’ve spent a lot of time over the last year focusing on my time in Africa. (Makes sense, considering Kenya and Botswana were my last two trips.) But I’ve had some amazing experiences in countries all over the world that I would love to share; hopefully inspiring your own adventures. Please feel free to share, ask questions or comment at any time.  I would love to hear from you.
