Sanda Muni Paya, Mandalay

(4.6/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
Visit Sanda Muni Paya to see why many call it the world's largest book. Situated at the base of Mandalay hill, the site features scores of brilliant white stupas, each containing marble slabs with inscriptions of the Buddha's teachings--1,774 "pages" in all. The 19th-century pagoda houses an enormous iron statue of Buddha, entirely gilded. Bear in mind that you need to take off your shoes prior to entering here. Outside you'll find vendors with gifts and souvenirs. Add Sanda Muni Paya to your Mandalay travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Mandalay vacation planner.
