Shwe Yaunghwe Monastery, Inle Lake (Dec 06)

In addition to the wooden consecration hall with its famed oval windows as shown in the previous post, the Shwe Yaunghwe Monastery also has an adjacent structure that seemed to be an inner sanctum of the monastery, with hundreds of niches in its red-painted walls, each of which contains a Buddha image. We were allowed to visit this structure, by arrangement of our local guide, but not much information about the place is available either on the web or in our travel guidebook...
