The Golden Skyline
of Shwe Inn Thein Paya
Not all are as shiny as these.
Away from the leg rowers and stilted houses of Inle Lake, the 1054 stupas of Shwe Inn Thein Paya are a blend of weather-beaten religious shrines and spruced-up ones.
The first “zedi” of this serene temple in Inn Thein date back from the 17th century and have long been left untouched.
