World on Tuesday

Mandalay and the Kuthodaw Pagoda which contains the world`s largest book. Each of the 729 smaller pagodas contain a marble slab with inscriptions on both side.

A magnificent sight , especially at sunset.

Souvenirs anyone?


  1. Lovely place. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Your photography is so excellent. I really enjoy your blog and the variety of life you photograph. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I am so loving that last one and especially in b&w! Wasn't the world's largest book incredible? I think that was one of my favorites! More!!

  4. Sachen gibt's da in Myanmar...
    ...sogar Venezianische Masken als Souvenir für Touris!

    So ein, zwei Pagoden anstatt einer evangelischen oder katholischen Stadtkirche stände auch so manchen schweizer oder deutschem Städtchen gut zu Gesicht. Oder was meinst du, Karen? ;-)
    Liebe Grüße aus dem Reich der Magnolien (habe heute in meiner Mittagspause wieder welche fotografiert)!

  5. Wow! I've never been anywhere even remotely similar to this. Magnificent is right on!

  6. I’d give my right arm to visit this place. SOSOSOSO beautiful. I wanna see the largest book. I saw the Book of Kells in Dublin, but not this one. Your captures of this peaceful, beautiful place are lovely. Nope...the snow and icy weather are still upon us. My poor little flowers. UGH!

  7. Wunderschöne Fotos! Durch diesen Säulengang vom zweiten Foto würde ich auch gerne gehen!
