Htis atop pagoda spires - Indein, Myanmar

Hti, a Burmese language word meaning umbrella, is the name of the finial ornament that tops almost all Burmese pagodas. Many pagoda htis around Myanmar are made of metal (usually iron or steel), coated with gold. The hti is then decorated with golden or gold-plated brass and bronze bells and at jewelry donated by devotees.
