Product Description

Myanmar is one such country where Sinhalese Buddhism and our history had a great impact. An example of this affection of Myanmar for Sri Lanka is found in the 12th century temple of Miyankaba Kubyaukgyi in Bagan, its then capital, where the entire history according to the Mahavamsa up to that time had been painted. These paintings provide a direct window into our historical memory in Myanmar.
