Shwe Yan Pyay (oval shaped window) monastery of Nyaung Shwe, Myanmar

To go to Inle Lake we took a flight from Yangon to Heho, then took a drive to Nyaung Shwe, the gateway to Inle Lake. This was where took a boat ride to our hotel (Golden Island Cottages) during my recent photo-safari with 12 other photographers. This was also where we visited the famous oval-shaped window monastery (Shwe Yan Pyay). (The rest of the collection here.)

We walked around the vicinity and into the monastery where we were rewarded with some good shooting opportunities. Come to think of it, we always have many good shooting opportunities whenever we go to Myanmar! 🙂

Besides monks we also got to shoot some of the kids who came to watch us going about enjoying our photography.

This was one of them.

This was the same monastery where I grabbed these shots the last time I was there in April 2010.
