Mid-morning in the village of Khatakan Taung in Sagaing Region, Myanmar showing the Lakyun Setkyar Buddha (see Lakyun Setkyar Buddha), the enormous reclining Buddha (at 91 meters long, said to be the largest in the world), the Aung Sakkya Pagoda, and the constant, yet rather low key, construction work in the region.
