  • Atumashi monastery is a contrast of white and yellow ochre. It was unfortunately damaged by a fire in 1890 and was renovated to restore its glory. The element that was the pride of this temple, a Buddha wearing of lacquer with at the front a huge diamond, has been stolen by the British during the taking of Mandalay and was never returned.

  • I can't tell if it is well worth the visit because it was recently rebuilt after the original building, built by King Mindon in 1857, was destroyed by fire in 1890. The grounds are very nice, not having much time simply take a picture from the outside, otherwise you can access the top floor which is very opulent.

Where to stay in Mandalay

Look at the area to the southwest of the royal palace for the main choice of accommodations in Mandalay. Some cushier options sit on the main thoroughfares, offering rooms with balconies overlooking the core architectural and historic sights. A number of basic hotels lie close to the main train station, while budget-friendly guesthouses concentrate in the area around 25th Street. Farther to the west, some hotels have views of the river, while to the east lie lodgings with convenient proximity to major regional highways.
