  Shwezigon Phaya naga tail

 

Myanmar

The tail end of the naga in the Stone Dragon Hall at the back of the Shwezigon Phaya (fig.) in Bagan, whose head protrudes at the Tantkyitaung Zedi (fig.) across the Irrawaddy River (fig.) . As is the case at the latter temple, pilgrims to this place come here to cleanse themselves by pouring cups of water over this naga tail, doing this as many times as their age, plus one.
