  • The design of Sanda Muni is very close to that of Kuthodaw, but since it's so close, our driver dropped us off there too and we walked through it. Equally beautiful~ 
  • Good walking distance, if you want to combine it with the Mandalay Hill. I found these tons of white stupas simply impressive! The Mandalay combination ticket is not necessary!
