Photo Friday: Love is in the air in Mandalay

Love is in the air on Mandalay Hill in Mandalay, Burma

Late one afternoon in the city of Mandalay, in Burma, my friend Alicia and I made the long and sweaty trek up Mandalay Hill.

All the way up the hill are small temples, shrines and shopfronts.

According to a friendly monk who accompanied us on the walk up, anyone can set up shop and live on Mandalay Hill, so long as they’re committed to keeping the place neat and tidy and tending to the shrines.

Perhaps this is one such shrine – can anyone enlighten me as to its purpose?

    I thinks it’s just a simple reminder of Love. No idea with other purposes. I viewed the photos on your Flicker and the views are beautiful; the place I suppose has yet to be commercialized.

      It’s definitely a very uncommercial place, Nonoy, and the views from Mandalay Hill are stunning. Thanks for commenting!
