  • If you arrive "Kyaukse City" in Mandalay Division, you must be vist to "Tamote Shwe Gu Kyi" pagoda. You can see very antique traditional architecture and Buddha image at there.  more »
  • Complex of temples that have been exposed after archaeological work carried out in recent years. One of the temples maintained its original structure on two floors (dating back to the 12th century - 13th) because for centuries it was buried under a mountain of rubble on which a stupa was located. The most outstanding feature of this temple is the stucco that covers all your exterior: plants, animals and mythological creatures. There are also three figures of Buddha as a curiosity, encapsulated one within another. The rest of temples only retain the bases, which have also been uncovered thanks to the excavations. The site is located approximately 1 hour 30 min from Mandalay. Time is outside the usual tourist circuits, but it is worth the displacement. We rent a taxi that took us there.

  • Location a bit off a bit isolated this beautiful site of the influx of tourists. The temple is very well preserved because it had been covered by a hill over the ages. Note the remarkable stucco decorations that allow to guess what were the temples of Bagan in the time of their glory only downside: in order to protect the site, the archaeologist have built a shed above. If the idea is interesting in terms of heritage conservation, is catastrophic in aesthetics: metal poles everywhere who assault the eye... photos of all impossible...
