Men gather to pray inside Mahamuni Buddhist temple in Mandalay

Men gather to pray inside Mahamuni Buddhist temple in Mandalay October 6, 2015. Buddhist-majority Myanmar goes to the polls on November 8 in an election billed as Myanmar’s first free and fair ballot in 25 years. Opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi last month urged supporters not to let the issues of race and religion dominate the parliamentary election, while critics have branded her National League for Democracy (NLD) too sympathetic to Muslims and unwilling to protect Buddhism.
