Around the stûpa, a large space for people walking, and on side, covered spaces sheltering altars, under which people come to shelter, to pray, to meet other people, to discuss, to inquire.

Staying in Yangon, this is a place to come several times to meet people, to meditate.

It was amazing to see such a place open to sky.
