Ayeyarwaddy River, Myanmar, BURMA

A row boat on the Ayeyarwaddy (Irrawaddy) River passes the huge, unfinished Mingun Paya. Construction of it began in 1790, and it was planned to be 150m tall, three times its present height, but in 1838 an earthquake cracked its sides and the structure was never completed.
