Every man in Myanmar must shave his hair and become a monk within a certain period of time. Otherwise, it will be scorned by society. Buddhists admire the construction of Buddha statues, and temples must be built with towers. There are many pagodas all over Myanmar. Therefore, Myanmar is also known as the "land of pagodas".
