  • Paleik village is famous with its Hmwe Paya temple or temple of the snake. It's in 1974 where they were found two snakes coiled around a Buddha statue in an old pagoda. The monks have tried without success to dislodge these snakes and therefore they concluded to deal with sacred animals... These reptiles have then been venerated until build them a new temple! Now naturalized these snakes are still present in the temple and have even successors offered by worshippers.

Where to stay in Mandalay

Look at the area to the southwest of the royal palace for the main choice of accommodations in Mandalay. Some cushier options sit on the main thoroughfares, offering rooms with balconies overlooking the core architectural and historic sights. A number of basic hotels lie close to the main train station, while budget-friendly guesthouses concentrate in the area around 25th Street. Farther to the west, some hotels have views of the river, while to the east lie lodgings with convenient proximity to major regional highways.
