Ancient stupas at Shwe Inn Tain Pagoda – Inle Lake, Myanmar

The Shwe Inn Tain Pagoda complex was pretty amazing, so I figured a second post about it with a few more photos was in order.  The first post is the Ruins and Ruining of Shwe Inn Tain Pagoda.

As a reminder, The Shwe Inn Tain pagoda is near the Inn Dain Khone village on the western bank of Inle Lake.  There are 1054 pagodas, built between 14th & 18th Centuries.

With visible cracks through the building and knowing how quickly an earthquake can strike and the damage it can do, we declined going inside.P1220733P1220734P1220736P1220737P1220738P1220700P1220704P1220707P1220708P1220710P1220712P1220713P1220714P1220715P1220716P1220723P1220785

While we were in the Shwe Inn Tain area, we also visited the Shwe Inn Tain Monastery and a small market as well as taking a walk through some of the local villages and visited a school.
