Myanmar’s ancient city crumbling away

Myanmar’s ancient city crumbling away

Myanmar’s ancient Buddhist kingdom of Mrauk U used to be an example of religious harmony.

But since violence broke out five years ago between Buddhists and minority Rohingya Muslims, the city has banned Muslims from entering the town.

Much of the city’s past has been erased, and with it, any hope that relations can be restored.

Al Jazeera’s Step Vaessen reports from Mrauk U, Myanmar.
