A truly golden pagoda! I would guess most of this is gold leaf, right?

Striking photo!

Oh wow. I'd love to see this temple. I like the statue of the Buddha. I have two in my house and they are very precious reminders to me to try to live and think a certain way. It would be amazing to see these large, graceful, golden statues and all the other relics in this ancient historical setting. Really spectacular JM!

God bless you!

The emerald green on the pillars is a stunning match to all that goldleaf. Must be a brilliant temple. Am a little encouraged by the news I'm reading coming out of Burma.
