  Bagaya Kyaung (bats)

 

Myanmar

During the daytime, the cool and dark environment of the inner halls of Bagaya Kyaung monastery in Inwa attracts dozens of bats.

 

These bats, a small kind of Horseshoe Bat (fig.), hang upside-down from the halls' ceiling and in the wooden frames of the upper walls.
