Stupefied! B&WStupefied! B&WThanboddhay Paya in late afternoon light. Sagaing Division, Myanmar (Burma). Stupefied!Stupefied!Thanboddhay Paya in late afternoon light. Sagaing Division, Myanmar (Burma). It was a 3-hour bus ride from Mandalay to Monywa. After checking in to my hotel, eating lunch, and a short nap, my motorcycle driver picked me up for an afternoon tour. 

 

Just south of town, we got a flat tire, so he instructed me to wait at the side of the road until he returned. He was back in about 45 minutes, and we carried on. 

 

Our first stop was Thanboddhay Paya, about 7 miles south of Monywa. It is an unusual temple because it has loads of mini-stupas, all painted gold. The late afternoon light on the gold stupas with the blue sky made for a dramatic image. I thought the black and white version was dramatic as well. I posted them both to let you decide.
