Temple in their backyard, Bagan, Myanmar
Second post today since these are the last of the images from Bagan; next comes Mandalay. We took a late day ride by horse cart to see another area with temples and I was surprised to see this dwelling made with rattan mats and thatch right up against the wall of one of the temples. Since many of you commented on the street food shot yesterday, if you look closely you can see a woman squatting at the left cooking over an outdoor fire.
Update in response to comments: Farmers cannot own their land in Myanmar, and this is only a very minor temple of the thousands in the area and none of the others had dwellings like this, so its purpose will remain a mystery. My best guess is land inherited over generations, but in Burma there are no deeds for inherited land, so no possibility of offiicial ownership.
