Morning meal at Sagaing Nunnery near Mandalay, Myanmar

Nuns share a mid-morning meal at the Tha Kya Di Thar Nunnery on Sagaing Hill near Mandalay, Myanmar. Each day at 10:45 a.m., the nuns gather in the communal hall to sing songs before sitting down to eat. Their performance is open to the public, and donations are always welcome. After their brief concert, visitors are welcome to walk around the grounds and visit the giant Buddha in the adjacent temple. I visited the nunnery and a number of other sites on Sagaing Hill following my Viking River Myanmar Explorer cruise/tour.
