Landmark
Visit Mingun Glocke to hear the ring of one of the world's largest bells. Cast in 1808, it held the record as the world's largest bell several times, before being eclipsed by one from China in 2010. The 6 m (20 ft) high, 90-ton bronze object features inscriptions describing its weight on the outside. This bell doesn't have a clapper; instead, it is rung by striking its outer edge. Give it a good hit, striking the bell is permitted. Arrange to visit Mingun Glocke and other attractions in Mingun using our Mingun travel itinerary planner.

  • This immense, 90 ton bell is well worth a quick visit on an excursion to Mingun one hour boat ride up river from Mandalay. It is also the world's largest intact bell as the only larger bell, in Moscow...  more »
  • Claimed the largest "ringing" bell, it is interesting to drop by, but it really is just a very old large bell. The surrounding areas are much more interesting.  more »
  • Small temple with the largest bell in the world. Nice short visit. Also go see the two temples in this town.  more »
