See the last royal residency of the Burmese monarchy at Mandalay Palace, an imposing site tipped in vermilion and gold. Constructed according to astronomical calculations in the traditional style between 1857-59, each building in the complex stands one story tall, surrounded by high walls and a deep moat. The entire compound consists of many interesting attractions, such as the royal mausoleums, a clock tower, throne rooms, supreme court, and a royal mint. The museum exhibits some royal dresses, which you can put on and take pictures.

  • Even though we had read on TA reviews don't look promising on the Mandalay Palace we decided for a visit. As expected quite disappointing, you can avoid it.

  • Consists of several buildings in wood, most are empty since they were rebuilt several times. There is also a very interesting Museum. Most of the enclosure should go barefoot.

  • The palace is huge with many buildings. Most were used by the military in a different era, and there is still a large military presence. The museum is worth a quick visit, quite small but interesting.  more »
