Maha Myat Muni Pagoda- Mahamuni Buddha Temple, Mandalay

4.4
#7 of 18 in Historic Sites in Mandalay
One of the country's major Buddhist pilgrimage sites, Maha Myat Muni Pagoda- Mahamuni Buddha Temple boasts a grand, golden image of Mahamuni Buddha. Tradition maintains that this realization of the Buddha is one of only five that were created during his lifetime, when according to legend, the Buddha visited the then capital of Arakan in 554 BC. The then king and his court were so moved by the Buddha's teachings that they asked him to leave an image of himself for the people to worship. Nowadays, the illustrious temple is lavishly adorned with golden spires and intricate flourishes. Look out for the Mahamuni museum on the temple grounds, where you'll have the opportunity to learn about the life of the Buddha. Make Maha Myat Muni Pagoda- Mahamuni Buddha Temple a part of your Mandalay vacation plans using our Mandalay trip builder.

    Let's take a walk around the grounds look a little bit. This spacious enough, it Temple of Loei The large Temple Bell This part is really hitting the bells. Drum tower and the overall area of the temple, Phra Maha Muni image, Mahamuni, came from the city of Nara, in the reign of God, anointed with khai bodo. Come on this side, there is another interesting building. The front will have a pole with Ashok. To simulate a sumeru and pointed down into the world.

    A Golden Buddha statue you hard gold (? ) He was stuck. You can approach the Buddha also comments of others, but is only for men. Nix area in Myanmar Buddhism-related facilities (and I mean, she'd no more area) is quite often. Enters the pagoda since taking off both shoes and socks during the day was a sunny place tiles has reached quite a high temperature, was training people to walk on.

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.
