Bargaya Monastery, Mandalay
(4.4/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
Visit the cultural heritage of Myanmar, Bargaya Monastery. Made entirely of teak wood, the monastery, which dates back to 1834, is set among the rice fields and brings out the beauty of the surrounding landscape. The 267 pillars make up the building's architecture, accompanied by carvings on the walls, which showcase the typical ancient, ornamental art. Unlike many others, the monastery still serves as an advice school for young monks, so you can see them learning and reading in their everyday surroundings while you experience the peaceful atmosphere inside. Use our Mandalay trip itinerary maker to add Bargaya Monastery and other attractions to your Mandalay vacation plans.
