Salay

We walked ashore at Salay, a resident village founded in the 13th century with Bagan-ers shrines, beautiful teak monasteries and preserved British Colonial buildings.
We walked along the street next to the river, admiring many of the Brisitsh-era colonial buildings before turning away from the river to visit the beautiful Yoke Soun Kyaung Taw Gyi wooden monastery.

  1. I love those decorative window screens. And it is always fun to spot a sewing machine in use.

  2. I was wondering if the temple was elevated because of river flooding. That is a tough tree to grow so well with its roots so exposed.

  3. The doggie looks like my old dog, Choco!

    I wonder what the man with the sewing machine was making...
