See white, wave-like base of Hsinbyume Pagoda, dating back to 1816. Prince Bagyidaw dedicated the pagoda to his wife, whose name translates as "White Elephant Princess." As you admire the pagoda, inspect the seven concentric terraces, which symbolize seven mountain ranges around Mount Meru. The top of the pagoda represents the Mount Meru, the mythical center of the universe according to Buddhist, Hindu, and Jain mythology. Keep an eye out for the niches around the pagoda, which feature small statues of mythical creatures, such as serpents, ogres, and spirits. Climb to the top of the pagoda to enjoy sweeping views over the nearby river. Use our Mingun trip planner to arrange your visit to Hsinbyume Pagoda and other attractions in Mingun.

  •  Known as shinbum pagoda (Hsinbyume Pagoda) or myatyndan pagoda (Mya Thein Tan Pagoda).  I went to 4/2018. To negotiate with the taxi voice came over I was walking from the center of the Mandalay city, had gone so far. South to the bridge over the straight line distance is 15 km from the center of the Mandalay Irrawaddy, have to go all the way around for actual road 40 km long, duration 1 hour-takes 1 hour and a half. And agreed that if I went here from Mandalay have to wait about an hour and a half on the way back to the hotel, not drop beinnear bridge of the Sun in the Middle, I got 40000.  Visited over water day, drivers in the third accept at 40000 people Festival was more bullish taxi presented 70000 chat and price negotiations does not respond at all, but I so lucky, you. As well, this pagoda is the sunny blue sky shining rays of the Immaculate appearance is very beautiful. You can look around the pagoda can climb on top of the pagoda.  There were several pagodas of old, stately atmosphere did not come to them because I didn't have time, if you have time to those want to go be like. This of course must bare feet upon admission. Not getting too hot because white is the color of the ground, floors most hot and hard to think when going to trot is in the shade, and 3:00 PM was extremly hot eases off the back foot to move out of the scorching sun, feet cool in the shade, The was not repeated. Myanmar people who don't mind walking really strange.  They are trained from childhood the thicker skin of the soles of the feet. Really beautiful pagoda in Cretaceous anyway against the blue sky and that is worth a visit. We recommend.
