Baby brother pagoda

As I mentioned before, there’s no shortage of pagodas and monasteries in Yangon. This neighbourhood pagoda was the other side of my hotel from the monastery featured in my previous post. In the first and last pictures in this set, you can just about make out Shwedagon Paya on the city skyline, looking down on its baby brother.

In the street just outside, there’s a row of small workshops where craftsmen make and sell miniature Buddha replicas covered in gold leaf.
