Innwa, Amarapura

#24 of 84 in Sightseeing in Mandalay Region
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.

  • Typical tour for guiris around Mandalay. They take you on boat scrap until the entrance of the village where you are obligated to pay a carriage ride with horse 4000 kyat per person. Or this or on foot walking in the mud by kilometers between mud and heavy selling. Horse malnourished and in poor condition obviously. Take you to see ruins that are not worth. At the end the journey lasts 1 hour and not 2 as saying. Avoid this disgusting place. You can find the worst of myanmar here.

Where to stay in Amarapura
