  • On the ride to the hotel in Mandalay, we visited this unique monastery. It is one of the few that is built from teak wood, because most were burned. Steps, climb to the top entrances. The outer walls are fitted with wood carvings that are very dusty. Including right Angels!

  • Very nice and very peaceful monastery with the central structure entirely made of wood on stilts, more than 100 years old. Entrance is free but you can leave an offer for the renovation of the building. The best time to visit is early morning or before sunset as it becomes very hot there after 11am like in other places in Mandalay.
  • Wooden architecture in this place is simply amazing. Overall a nice place to go.
  • Beautiful wooden architecture with wonderfully intricate wood carvings and decorations. Interesting history.
