1000 and one Stupa

Shwe Indein Pagoda at Inle Lake: over 1000 stupas cover the area. Some are forfeited, others beautifully restored. The mood is mystical. Many stupas are completely overgrown by green plants, others shine golden in the sunlight. Many stupas are donations from Burmese as thanks to Buddha | Myanmar
