The Shwey Yan Pyay Monastery

On the morning of Feb 2nd we flew from Mandalay to Heho in order to get to Inle Lake, the last place we were to visit on the Myanmar trip. On way to the port on the lake by  bus we stopped to see the Shwe Yan Pyay Monastery. This monastery is a large wooden building and it is part of a pagoda with lots of other structures. There were a number of walls little niches with various forms of statues, many of which were gifts from visitors.

Here is a long (5 minute) mediocre-quality video that I took walking around the interior of a portion of pagoda that gives an idea of how much there is - it appears to be repetitive but it was really a walk around it.
