Buddha's in a Field, Lumbini Gardens Near Hpa An
Approaching Lumbini Garden.
The main gate arch and a disinterested cashier. ‘Each foreigner must donate (3) dollars’.
From the gate this looked like a fantastic photographic opportunity. 1121 Buddha’s in a field. Mount Zwegabin at 2,372 feet and a monastery (just visible) reached in two to four hours – or in our case guessing more like eight. Aggressive monkeys on the many steps, no to that then....
Up closer, we saw rubbish, overgrown, badly maintained and crumbling chaps.
Bear posing with the boys.
ALL IN ALL SUCH AS SHAME THAT THE GROUNDS ARE NOT WELL KEPT
WHAT A LOT OF BUDDHA’S PEERING OUT OF THE GRASS
