Nga Phe Kyaung monastery

(near Ywama on Lake Inle, Shan State, Myanmar )

This is an attractive wooden monastery built on stilts over the lake at the end of the 1850s.  Aside from its collection of Buddhas the monastery may be of interest to visit because its monks have taught a few of the many cats living with them to jump through hoops.  It is for this reason - following a request for photos of the jumping cats - that this photo gallery has been assembled from a few photos of the monastery, monks and cats.
