Innwa, Amarapura

(220+ reviews on the web)
Neighborhood Tourist Spot
Innwa periodically served as the capital of the Ava Kingdom that ruled upper Burma between 1365 and 1842. Notable onsite attractions include a royal monastery with elaborate stucco work, a leaning watch tower, and a teak monastery. At the royal monastery, notice some unfinished frescoes--the result of an incomplete renovation project. Make Innwa a centerpiece of your Amarapura vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Amarapura vacation planner.
