Mahamuni Buddha Temple

Mahamuni Buddha Temple
Myanmar (Burma), Mandalay, March 2012

The Mahamuni Buddha Temple is a Buddhist temple and major pilgrimage site, located in southwest Mandalay. The Mahamuni Buddha image (literal meaning: The Great Sage) is deified in this temple. It is highly venerated in Burma and central to many people's lives, as it is seen as an expression of representing the Buddha's life: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mahamuni_Buddha_Temple

The picture shows girls and boys dressed up for their inauguration as nuns and monks.

Thanks all for visiting, the nice comments and the favourites!
