What travelers say:

As the religious center of Burma, Mandalay has numerous temples and pagodas, and faithful believers visit the Mahatnaine pagoda to wash their faces for the statue. The group of pagodas and temples, a complex south of Mandalay, is flowing with devout believers. In 1784, the Buraku Podopaya ( Bodawpaya) of the Gongbang Dynasty was taken by Mrauk U and the statue was built to worship it. The bronze statue of the Mahatnain Buddhist Tower is about 4 meters high and weighs 6.5 tons. The local people regard it as the true body of the Buddha, and therefore enjoys a very high position in Myanmar. Local people here for the statue of the golden foil, years down, the golden foil has thick 7 cm, but only men can enter the Buddha's range, for the statue of the gold foil. A group of women who were refused by the Buddha outside the door, sitting in front of the Buddha, holding flowers, saying words, even if the surrounding crowd of photography tourists, also without any interference.
