Heavy rain in Myanmar has damaged a number of ancient Buddhist pagodas.

“We started renovation on the morning of October 21 when the rain slowed down. We will work on it as quickly as possible to restore the damage,” he said.

“We were in the middle of planning a long-term project to renovate pagodas managed by the department and some works for that had already started. But when the rain left some pagodas damaged, we made repairing them our top priority,” U Kyaw Oo Lwin said.
