Pagodas are meant to be worshipped,not for entertainment or for a model to step on and do what she likes. And the golden rod that she's holding near her pelvic area is what we call a "Ta-gon-tine" and whenever we pray,we hold that golden rod above our head. And there is another picture on W Magazine's official facebook page.

In that photo,she was wearing a monk's robe and beads as fashion accessories. We don't even step on the shadow of a monk or a monk's robe and now she's wearing it.

Here is also another photo of her with the "Kyeik-Htee-O"(a famous pagoda of Myanmar) as a fashion Background.

This is clearly an insult to Buddhism and Myanmar's culture. They should have known that this is a serious issue for us.  It is our job to preserve and protect our sacred places,tradition,culture and religion.
