Photo taken by @stevemccurryofficial // Split by an earthquake in 1838, King Bodawpaya’s pagoda in Mingun, near Mandalay, is a monument to earthly ambition and a dream unfulfilled. Begun in 1790 to enshrine a holy relic – a tooth reputed to be the Buddha’s – the pagoda was envisioned by Bodawpaya as the world’s largest. Thousands of slaves did the work. When Bodawpaya died in 1819, the brick base with its decorated doorway stood 162 feet high -about one-third the planned height- and 236 feet long on each side. Bodawpaya’s children decided that that was big enough. They halted construction on the ornate structure that was to sit atop the brick base, and the shrine fell into disuse. Despite the pagoda’s ruined condition, visitors must still remove their shoes before entering the sacred site. by natgeo

@edkashi of @viiphoto is taking over the @thephotographersgallery Instagram feed for one week to coincide with the exhibition #humanrightshumanwrongs. This image is from a body of work that focuses on some of the #humanrights issues fueling the fire in Northern Nigeria. A Muslim Fulani man stands in the doorway of his burnt out home in Attakar, #Nigeria on March 26, 2013. Hisfamily’s home was attacked the previous week by Christian Fulanis, with their compound burned and ransacked. By the end of the rampage, more than twenty-five people were dead in this small rural hamlet. Nigeria is evenly split between the primarily Muslim north and a Christian south. Although most people live in harmony, since 2009, a violent Islamic insurgent group, Boko Haram, has become increasingly radical and destructive, targeting Nigerian security forces, schools, fellow Muslims and Christians. They are responsible for the kidnapping of hundreds of school girls over the past year. by natgeo
