  • Here is a very strangely surreal atmosphere. I think even if you have very little time in Mandalay, you should look at this plant here.

  • In terms of feedback and had impressive without a doubt. Into stone near the entrance has the information, and on both sides of the aisle 729 white small pagodas are neatly lined, its a great I really is. And it was with only 2 places and tablets of stone Scriptures placed in the pagoda, according to a guide published. It was regret include further shine to the golden pagoda was restored.

  • Really enjoyed strolling round here. The uniformity and white colour of the stupas make for a calming influence. The Buddhist Scriptures are also very impressive. Lovely experience.
