Sulamani Temple – 52 Weeks Photo Challenge:Week 31 – Empty Space

This is our entry in 52 WEEKS PHOTO CHALLENGE:WEEK 31 – EMPTY SPACE.

The two-story Sulamani Temple is a popular Buddhist temple located in Minnanthu, a village southwest of Bagan, Myanmar. Built in 1183 and damaged in the 1975 earthquake, it was rebuilt in 1994. Inside, visitors can find frescoes on the walls and Buddha statues. For a few minutes while we visited, the corridor pictured below was empty. We can imagine that many religious ceremonies must have happened in this hallway over the centuries.
