  Inle covered bridge (dismantled middle section)

 

Myanmar

 

A typical Inle pedestrian bridge (fig.), which is covered and highly arched to allow passage of boats, yet here the middle section has been temporarily dismantled in order to allow the larger Hintha Barge (fig.) to pass during the annual Hpaung Daw U Buddhas Procession.
