Yangon, Bago, Kalaw & Inle Lake | Journey to Kengtung | Buddhist monks of Burma

Buddhist monks of Burma

The day begins early for those saffron-robed legionaries, the Buddhist monks of Southeast Asia, as they glide through the morning mists, alms bowls at the ready. Glimpses inside the Kha Khat Wain Kyaung Monastery in Pegu (Bago), Burma (Myanmar) reveal the domestic life of the Sangha or community of ordained believers.
