Botahtaung Pagoda In Yangon

On the east side of town, among busy port traffic, sits the mighty Botahtaung pagoda.

Main stupa, under renovation.

The complex is big on bling, whether a prayer hall or small alcove.

Buddha, straightening his hair.

Bananas and coconuts are the usual offering and they take some labor for proper prep.

Heading in for prayer in the main stupa. No doubts you're in the holiest place, wall-to-wall bling.
