  Temple Lighting
by herzog63

Favorite thing: One of my only compaints in Myanmar was at the Temples and the use of lighting. I felt that the flourescent tubes took away from the whole mystic experience of the Temples. Especially the ones that had the moving lights circling behind Buddhas head. I guess I would rather have candles or holes placed in the roof to allow just enough light in to see or just total darkness. Sorry about complaining but it was one of my first and only complaints of Myanmar. Most people couldn't care less or may even like the moving lights but it just didn't look very ancient to me.
