  Yattana Shihmih

 

Myanmar

Yattana Shihmih, also referred to as the Yadana Hsemee Pagoda, is a deserted Buddhist temple complex in Ava, i.e. present-day Inwa.

 

This early brick monastery, said to date from the 17th century AD, consists of several edifices, such as the ruins of a prayer hall, as well as several stupas and pagodas.

The main prayer hall has over time collapsed and its roof caved in...

 

As a result, this building's chief Buddha image, which is flanked by images of his disciples Sariputta and Mogallana, now stands outdoors.
