Inva is the most worthy of Mandela's four ancient cities. It will take a carriage ride to four more famous attractions, each worth seeing. It has always been the capital of the Burmese dynasty.
Inva Ancient City of the carriage can drive your own horse, let the carriage driver help you. I didn't wear glasses driving the horse, while driving me want to laugh, the road can not see at all, haha, to everyone in the ditch. Worth coming, many monuments.
Inva is an old city, although the walls are shabby, but there are many more ancient Buddhist towers, beautiful, and indeed worth savoring. However, there is no Angkor from the vast, but it is very comfortable to roam in a carriage.
1. It is 30 kilometers away from the downtown of Mandalay. Most tourists come with a group; 2. But if you rent a motorcycle or bicycle, you can get on the ferry near the Sagaing Bridge. A round trip of 1,400 kyats and a round trip of 2,000 kyats for a single person can save 10 kilometers of distance; 3. Tourists who do not have transportation tools will mostly choose to rent a horse-drawn carriage. A horse-drawn carriage costs 10,000 kyats around the city. About 50 yuan; 4. The ancient city is not well-protected, and there are not many monuments left to visit, and it is very dirty. There are two must-see attractions: Nanmyin Watch Tower, Mal Nu Monastery, 5. There is also an Invar Museum, There are few exhibits, free to visit; 6. Tickets are included in the Chase pass (10,000 kyats).
Inva ancient city needs to take a boat + horse and buggy, both water and land can reach, and it is enough to take a horse and buggy around. Many buildings have been destroyed during World War II, and at the end of the ancient temple, said to be the oldest inva, the whole temple was built of teak, very strong. Unlike the many temples in Burma, the temple is particularly quaint and natural, with a school where, fortunately, children from the local population can read books and experience the life of Inva.
Located in the southwest suburb of Mandalay, the ancient city of Inva is surrounded by the Irrawaddy River and the Mitange River, a historically forgotten island. In 1287, the Ogan dynasty was destroyed by the Yuan Kublai, and the Dai people established the Inva dynasty in the north. In 1555, the Inva dynasty was destroyed, and the capital was destroyed. It was completely destroyed by the earthquake in 1839, and it died out of the historical stage. Now scattered ruins are hidden among the lush trees on the island, in the fields, invas, the ancient capitals, where glory and strife have gone far, but the ruins are rubbed away in the lush pastures. The destruction of the ancient city caused a great deal of destruction, leaving a large number of buildings broken in the wall. Now we can see that only four major monuments, namely: the Bao Gaya Temple, the Atana Xinmi Pagoda, the Monastery and the Mahama Temple. Some of these ruins are dilapidated, some are still retaining the old beauty, standing in front of them, not aware of that time of the centuries, how can so quietly pass, those temples, pagodas as if born so, time, but finally calm. To the ancient city, you need to take a ferry across the river and return to 800Kyat. The best way to visit the ancient city is by horse-drawn carriage, but you can also take your own bicycle or motorcycle, and gallop on the field. The carriage is 5000Kyat two hours, the extra time will be counted separately, it is almost impossible to walk to the ancient city. Historically, the ancient city of Inva has also witnessed the death of a Chinese emperor. In 1661, the Qing army invaded Yunnan, and the Emperor Yongli exiled to Mandalay, the capital of Burma, and was taken into the ancient city of Inva. On August 12, 1661, Mangbai launched the curse of the water, killing the emperor of the Yongli to the near guard. On January 22, 1662, Mangbai dedicated the Emperor of the Yongli to Wu Sangui, and the Ming Dynasty was completely destroyed. The ship crossed the Mitange River, which was the ancient city of Inva that took in the Emperor of the Yongli. A spectacular horse-drawn carriage is visible uphill. The price is almost the same here, just choose one and leave, and it is the first day of the Lunar Calendar midday, and it is a good thing to ride in a carriage! The horse kicked and kicked away to the ancient city. In a few moments, he saw the red walls hidden in the dense forests of the south, and occasionally the pagoda pierced the green curtain. We walked along the wall all the way south, and then east across a paddy field, and came to the Baogaya Temple outside the ancient city.
The ancient city of Inva has a large history with China. It is said that the Ming emperor fled here and was finally killed by Wu Sangui. It ended the reign of the Ming Dynasty for 300 years. It can be reported to the ox cart tour and tickets are required.
It is full of local texts that I don’t understand, but I faintly feel that this ancient city has a lot of history, and this watchtower also has quite a story. i like it very much.
