Compared to pagodas in Tibet, Myanmar's version imparts a kind of otherworldly spirit. The gilded stupas are cherished as an iconic landmark throughout the country. They are imposing and supreme, but not intimidating. Rather, I find the pagodas in Myanmar modest and down-to-earth. It defines the spirit of the city of Yangon, and the spirit is reflected in both urban and rural life. Churches are to European countries what temples are to a Buddhist country. Temples in Myanmar are places where people seek spiritual resonance and support.
