How it works:
- Opening: if you enter by the back entrance, an elderly man will offer to bring you around. However, he claims that you have to be blessed by a monk before you can see the reclining Buddha.
- Set-up: you are then led to a dark house (with the fence locked after you enter). Here a monk will say a few words of “prayer”, and an inflated donation is then demanded.
Places to beware:
- Yangon: Chaukhtatgyi Buddha
What to do:
- Enter by the front entrance or ignore the man.
