Burmese Princesses shot by Felice Beato between 1888–1893 in Burma.

Beato was the first European photographer to devote himself entirely to photographing in Asia and the “Near East”—including Japan, India, Constantinople, and Palestine. He settled in Yokohama and from 1863 to 1877 made hundreds of ethnographic portraits and genre scenes in Japan. He eventually opened a furniture and curio business in Burma.

Hsinbyume Pagoda - Mandalay, Myanmar

The Hsinbyume Pagoda is a uniquely shaped, white washed pagoda just outside of Mandalay. The Pagoda is topped with a gold spire, that enshrines an image of Buddha. The seven tiers of the pagoda feature niches, that contain small statues of mythological figures.

It is possible to climb to the top of the structure, where you will be treated to a great view of the Irrawaddy river, and nearby Mingun Pagoda.
