4400 sacred structures fill 26-square miles. Built during 12th-century, incredible structures in and of themselves display fine works of metal casting, wood carving, lacquer ware, paintings, silversmith and so much more. To travel back during its heyday.... so remote these many temples...were they alive with activity? Wow!

Mythical, mystical, magical Mandalay is what I found searching the outer perimeters where history religion seemed to collide creating a unique cosmos. Kings from different countries all wanted a piece and if they wasn't enough, the capital was repeated moved and structures added leaving the King's mark in the future.

Religious freedom doesn't come close to describing the experiences I had with one fairth and another. In no other country have I been exposed to anything like this. And to think I was in a country known for government control and little knowledge of the outside world!

Myanmar is a kind of magical place in our collective memory, maybe due to the excellent novel by Orwell, or maybe due to the postcard nature of blue and gold pagodas half-hidden in the exuberant greenery. In any case few will resist the temptation of visiting it.
