Details of the Facade of Yoke Sone Kyaung
Myanmar (Burma), Salay, March 2012

The 19th century wooden monastery Yoke Sone Kyaung is famous for its exquisite wooden carvings. The main attraction of the monastery is the decorative wooden panels made by the master carvers of the period whose meticulous workmanship is in many ways superior to those of later periods.
