Photos of the Day – Oct 31

The Shwezigon pagoda is where much of the Full Moon festival activities centered around in Nyang U. As the sun began to set, the sparrows began flocking, and locals and travelers began gathering around as the candles were lit around the base. -w

Our last evening in Bagan we visited the huge gilded Shwezigon Pagoda for sunset. Nuns placed tiny oil lamps every few feet around the base and lit the pagoda by candle light. Bagan isn’t just a place Western tourists visit, there were local tourists and families making their vacation day pilgrimage as well. I watched these children lighting candles for a long time before finally capturing their beautiful light.-k
