riverside temples 2

Much less visited smallish temples along the Ayeyarwaddy River north of Bagan. They're not even on the little maps or in the guides to the area, but I had seen them from the boat upon my arrival and I wanted to find them.


To my delight, they were accessible only by going through this tiny village and following footpaths up and down the hills riverside. There was no one else there but the occasional curious kid or cow, and I quite successfully escaped Bagan's growing tourist glut.


The Ayeyarwaddy and its floodplains behind. See the tiny people on the far shore?
