My next vacation is approaching 😀! Can’t wait! But I need to be patient as I still need to work for 4 weeks before I can take off.
In the meantime, let’s go down memory lane and remember one of the countries that fascinated me most: Myanmar 🇲🇲.
I was lucky enough to visit this country twice: in 2014 during 18 days, and in 2015, for only 5 days as I went with my son from Malaysia, where he was doing an internship, and he couldn’t take time off. For sure there will be a third time 😌, although at this moment I don’t know when. But what I know for sure, is that the next time I will exhaust the 28 days allowed by the visa 😉!
.
There are many amazing places in Myanmar, but if there is one that really stole my heart, that was Bagan ❤️. Here you can find the world’s biggest concentration of Bhuddist temples and pagodas. There are around 2,200 still standing!!! The Ananda Temple, built in the year 1105 is one of the most important ones. When I visited in 2014 it was being restored, and when I visited again in 2015 it was looking this beautiful 💖.

1/9
I feel like some part of me is still trapped within medieval age. I get completely imersed into these places, legacy and history of my homeland. Where I stand, centuries ago brave men gave their life for this nation, our freedom, kept our independence and gave us the chance to spread  our culture and identity all over the world in what was the first global Empire .

Мне всё больше нравится главный собор в Аликанте, которому я всегда предпочитала базилику Святой Марии, с празднично украшенным входом: весь в лепке и рельефных скульптурах. Этот же казался скучным, но чем чаще хожу мимо, тем больше интригуют эти надписи на стенах. С другой стороны даже есть одна, где один из знаков точь-в-точь Дары Смерти, только перевернутый 😄 #larkina_alicante

„Man shall not live by bread alone” / „Nie samym chlebem człowiek żyje...” (Matthew 4:4), nieprawdaż 😉?
Nie wiem jak Wy, ale ja uwielbiam w trakcie urlopu zaglądać do lokalnych kościołów i świątyń choćby na chwilę zadumy... jednym z takich miejsc jest prawosławny kościół im. Jana Włodzimierza w miejscowości Bar w Czarnogórze. Warto zawitać tam z samego rana zanim rzesze turystów wypełnią to miejsce po brzegi... stworzenie niezwykle szczegółowych fresków ściennych zajęło specjalnie przygotowanym do tego artystom ponad dwa lata intensywnej pracy jednak efekt końcowy zapiera dech w piersiach nawet zwykłym „przechodniom”.
Świątynia powstała na cześć niezwykle pobożnego, sprawiedliwego i pokojowego władcy regionu Duklja, który panował w okresie konfliktu Bizantyjsko-Bułgarskiego i całą swoją postawą bronił wartości takich jak dobro, pokojowa współpraca , wiara w wyższe wartości czy potrzeba opiekowania się poddanymi. Ponieważ nawet wówczas takie działanie stawało się już niemodne wśród głodnych podbojów władców, podstępem zwabiono go na bułgarski dwór i tam zamordowano, a cuda po jego śmierci utwierdziły zarówno jego poddanych jak i wrogów o wyjątkowości jego postawy. Energia tego miejsca inspiruje...

Looking up! The dome of Suomenlinna Church through its modern chandelier.
#Suomenlinna #church #dome #lookingup #patterns
The architect of this cathedral in 1895 was John Francis Bentley. He used the byzantine style. What is interesting is the facade of red brick dressed with white stone. #architecture #architecturephotography #architectures #architectural #architecturelovers #byzantine #catholic #catholiccathedral #catholiccathedrals #religiousarchitecture #london #visitlondon #visitlondonofficial #londonarchitecture #timeoutlondon
Originally I was going to post my photo of the outside of Salisbury cathedral with the fact that it has the tallest spire in Britain, but it seems some Russian tourists beat me in sharing that fun fact, so here's another interesting fact, these choir stalls are the earliest complete set in the country, and Salisbury was the first cathedral to have a girls choir!

"Radiant with its white bush-hammered stone cladding, the church solemnly sits in the landscape," said Maroun Lahoud. "Its aspect embodies the characteristics of the Maronite Church: pure massing and flat roof."

The Dolmabahçe Camii in Istanbul was completed in 1855. Designed by Garabet Balyan in the Ottoman style with Baroque and Rococo influenced features, it was commissioned by Bezm-î Âlem, second wife of Sultan Mahmut II. The mosque stands on the banks of the Bosphorus Strait. #turkey #türkiye #istanbul #beyoğlu #dolmabahçe #dolmabahçecamii #dolmabahçemosque #dolmabahcemosque #camii #mosque #minaret #islam #ottoman #ottomanarchitecture #architecture #architectureofistanbul #religiousarchitecture #islamicarchitecture #architecturephotography #garabetbalyan #1855 #bezmialem #bezmîâlem #bosphorus #timeless_unlimited #world_heritages_ #world_destinations_ #turkinstagram #timeofturkey

The outside of this building is very impressive. Opened in 1911 it was the third Christian Science church in London. The American founder was Mary Baker Eddy whose portrait is included.

Batu Caves are a series of caves on the side of a limestone hill a few km outside Kuala Lumpur. They are the site for an important Tamil temple dedicated to Lord Murugan, whose iconic statue features in literally every picture of these caves.
I stepped out solo to visit Batu Caves yesterday. Unfortunately, this one time, I did not think ahead about the place I was going to and ended up wearing a knee-length skirt.
I discovered my folly when I was told at the foot of the temple stairs that bare legs were not allowed inside.
I could have paid a 100 bucks and rented something more 'appropriate' to cover myself with, but I didn't feel like it. There was a good chance I would climb those 272 steps to the top of the temple only to run into a top-naked priest doing whatever priests do at temples, and that would have sullied the whole experience for me. So I did not climb the stairs. I roamed the rest of the complex for a while, and when it began to rain heavily, I left. No regrets.
.
I fail to understand: Just because a priest is a man of God, his exposed upper body is acceptable, while my exposed legs are somehow unholy or 'disrespectful'? How?
I have no qualms covering up to respect cultural or religious sentiments - I'm an Indian for God's sake, it's drilled into our genes - but there need to be equal standards for all. That's all I ask for. Even if it is an unpopular opinion.

Toku’un-ji Temple [1965] by Kiyonori Kikutake #metabolistgroup #religiousarchitecture #temple #kiyonorikikutake
This is the side entrance to the Trunk bar and restaurant, from Little Lonsdale, of the building that was once the מקוה ישראל synagogue. This is now a kitchen area, but can it be that this was the main entrance once? As it doesn't make much sense to access from the side facing East (then called Stephen St) where the ארון הקודש would have been.
שבת שלום.

I took this pic inside the Citadel in Cairo. The complex was built in 1176, people. Yeah. Give that a minute. It was ordered by Saladin. 
On this day, i was really enjoying the topiary work and the masonry.

When I took the shot, the light was just so right. Everything became still. (In CAIRO!) I smiled and also shook my head over the fact that well over eight hundred years after the project was finished, when I had flown around the curve of the Earth in a jetliner to see the place, collapsing sections were being held up by wooden beams.

Oldest church in the USA: San Miguel Mission. It was so awesome to attend mass here when visiting family in New Mexico! (although I had to come back at a different time to take photos 😜 I suffered through gladly) We stayed in Santa Fe as a part of our trip, a town I haven’t been to since...the late 90’s??

I am so excited to be participating in #loopof52clicks: a weekly loop where we share a photo from a monthly photography challenge. We hope you will follow along on our journey and be inspired to try some new techniques as well. This month’s theme is “Backlit”. Feel free to participate in the challenge with us by tagging your photos #loopof52clicks_backlit. Next in the loop is @sarrahhkaayy - show her some love!
