  • Even if the entire plant is a replica of the wooden palace destroyed in the 2.Weltkrieg with many outbuildings, so it is worth a visit yet. At the main entrance of the city founder and Palace Mr King Mindon sits with his wife, on both sides you can see beautiful vessels, a testimony to the high Burmese handicrafts. Especially fun is it, with the bike outside around to drive all 4 sides of the city wall (8 km), before you from the East comes through the main gate (ticket office). From the wooden observation tower (a perfect replica of the original), you have beautiful views of the building and you can see to the Mandalay Hill in the North of the city.
