I love temples for their sense of calm and mediration. They have a spiritual energy unlike other places of worship. Even if they’re just ruins, they continue to emanate the religious fervor of a thousand years.
I also love taking photos of doors, windows, and passageways. To me, they are means by which temple architects use to bring spiritual awe and ecstasy on pilgrims. Doors are entryways to experience Buddha while windows connect the secular world with the spiritual inside. Passages are labyrinths of faith in which pilgrims journey into the spiritual sanctum of the temples. It is all these I have tried to capture in Bagan.
