Julie at Ananda ~ Bagan, Myanmar
Feb 05, 2002

We dodged one bus load of Italians dressed in traditional Bamar costume come barrelling out, just as another large tour group was going in wearing shorts and tank tops - past signs forbidding such attire. Despite these first impressions this very famous of Bagan's temples maintains a hushed and reverent atmosphere. Tourists seem to dissappear and small clusters of worshippers respectfully shuffle the clockwise circuit to each of the four immense standing Buddhas.
