A few more pagoda / monastery things at Bago

The Mon are an ethnic group in Burma supposedly founded Bago in 533 (or 825 depending on the source). Their descendants form a significant proportion of the current Myanmar population and they had a significant role in the spread of Buddhism throughout Burma. It's another fine place to visit with pagodas and monasteries.  The reclining Buddha seen here is 177 feet long.
