    "The Scientology Temple is really similar to the Cookdorf Tower, and the location is very close. In the end, I was a bit confused about whether the two places were confused. They all need the white tower, which is simply a punching location for small literary fresh tourists. Rows of white towers along the way are a must for photographers. I saw many excellent photos in tripadvisor . Unfortunately, it rained on the day of the visit, which made it very difficult to see the scenery. Even if the dry season came, there was a chance to rain."
    Reasons to Recommend: Sandamuni is a snow-white phalanx of Tallinn at the southern foot of Mandalay Mountain. In the center is a large golden pagoda, and there is a small golden pagoda beside it. The bells on each tower jingled with the wind. The entire layout is basically symmetrical in four directions, like a continuous white square. This temple was built in 1866 by King Mindong in memory of his murdered younger brother to express his condolences. There are also many stone tablets of the Tripitaka scriptures similar to the Kudutao Pagoda can be seen here. Sitting in the center of the temple, looking at the white pagoda, I feel that the white and pure eyes are a wish to return to the void and indifference. What can't be concealed is the sadness that cannot be forgotten. It is a kind of fragility, but also a kind of softness; it is a kind of self-exile, and it is also a real power to infect the soul.

Personally feel that Iwa is worth a visit, there are historical sites, there are beautiful pastoral scenery, of course people are not bad. Recommended. The floor is very dangerous, many nails have raised, be careful when walking barefoot on it, the interior is very dark and wet, but the stereo wood carving is really beautiful, in the place where there are tickets, but it is not well maintained, if the fare is too low, really can be adjusted, Otherwise, it can be seen that the original beauty, but because neglect and lose it, too bad."

    "The pagoda stands in the middle of the temple, shining gold, neatly lined with small white pagodas, each of which is a stone tablet engraved in Bali with three Tibetan scriptures but now each pagoda has iron fences to prevent destruction. In the 19th century, the Mingong Dong Wang of the Gongbang Dynasty summoned 2,400 high monks to carve the Three Tibetan Sutras. The scale is large and it takes 8 hours to work in Japan. The text of the entire group of towers adds up to 450 days to read. It is conceivable that the text inside is so precious that many small pagodas, one of which is opened by iron gates. For tourists to watch the contents of the stone tablets close up, dense Burmese. The stupa is surrounded by photos. The photo here is a bit like a cream cotton castle. A piece of pure white stupa is in the middle of a golden golden tower, surrounded by many white towers. Visitors can go close to the clock and pray for their families."
    Reasons to Recommend: Tidagu Buddhist College is located at the foot of Mount Sagaing, where more than 600 monks from Myanmar and around the world practice here.
