  • While I've been reached the stage of being overdosed with pagodas Shwe In Bin proved an exception as there were no more than 2-8 visitors present when I was there. Finding this relatively hidden build...  more »
  • Shwe In Bin Kyaung is a beautiful teak monastery commissioned by two Chinese men in the 1890's - lovely. It's not too busy and is easy to walk around and admire. 
  • Kyaung Shwe In Bin is one of the two most complete monasteries in Mandalay. This site is fabulous. We were lucky to be only during our visit. These buildings wooden - era - are incredible authenticity. The wood work and construction on stilts are undeniably a strong point for this place so well preserved. Free entrance, easy access and fun time. Not to be missed.

  • This is an amazing tranquil place with great woodwork all around you. You can walk around and enjoy the teak woodcraft on architecture and then meditate inside. Recommended!!
  • By far the cutest pagoda I've seen. The one in Innwa is not half what you'll see there. None seems to know it so it's very empty but this is such a nice place. The sculptures on the doors and walls, the pillars under which you can walk, the for-once-not-shiny temple inside. A place to see
  • wonderful wooden temple
  • a treasure in wood
  • Nice
