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.

  • The most spectacular pagoda which I've ever seen. I guess that something is about to be completely alone and only hear the bells swung in the wind. In shock!

  • In the beautiful walk to mingun after main pagoda there is this other that is certainly different but that I personally enjoyed most from outside; If you visit at dusk or the Sun come and go in the clouds white the "curve", its spires offer a wonderful subject. The white suit and takes on different hues. Marvel

  • see the red color of the monks who climb the stairs of the pagoda, gives a strong contrast of colors that the pagoda you can offer. even more so if the monks are monks simply children.
