An estimated 8,000 Buddha statues line the half-lit interiors of the enigmatic Pindaya caves, 614km north of Yangon. Varying is size and style, the figures were mostly installed between the 16th and 18th centuries, and are made of gold, silver, marble, lacquer, teak and ivory. They’re very much objects of active veneration: worshippers young and old bow before them, offering flowers and incense in clasped hands to honour the principles of kindness, compassion and tolerance which the statues embody.
