Mandalay Palace, Mandalay

1.5
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.
