MYANMAR – Bagan – Lunch at a monastery garden

Amidst a monastery compound, under the shade of a Banyan tree, a traditional lunch is served. The traditional wooden and brick monastery is a unique setting away from the busy temples of Bagan to a quiet, spiritual atmosphere. In the late morning, monks line up at the entrance of the monastery with their alm bowls to receive the last meal of the day. It is the perfect moment to get a better understanding of Buddhism. After this daily ceremony, a traditional lunch is served at the back of the compound, in an intimate setting.
