Yangon Buddhist temple: a nirvana for snakes

  • Crossing a bridge to the middle of a lake in Myanmar’s Yangon region, pilgrims arrive at a temple to pin their hopes on the pythons slinking across the temple’s floors and draped across windows.
  • “People come here because they believe that their prayers will be fulfilled when they ask for something,” said Sandar Thiri, a nun residing at the Baungdawgyoke pagoda – dubbed the “snake temple” by locals.
  • “The rule is that people can only ask for one thing, not many things,” she said. “Don’t be greedy.”
