  Shin U Pagok shrine

 

Myanmar

As the deity believed to guard over water Shin U Pagok is often located in a shrine built directly over water (fig.). Shrines with his statue can therefore be found built in major water reservoirs, such as Inle Lake, a ca. 115 square kilometer freshwater lake in Myanmar's Shan State.
