Located in the north of Mandalay City, Mandalay Hill was formerly known as the Raksha Nuwa Mountain and is a famous Buddhist shrine in Myanmar. Standing on the top of the hill overlooking the city of Mandalay, it is a great place to watch the sunrise and sunset. The main entrance to Mandalay Hill is on the south side. There are several temples and pagodas at the foot of the mountain that are worth visiting. It attracts many tourists and believers. For example, the Gudu Tao Pagoda, the Shanda Moonee Pagoda, famous for its Buddhist scriptures, and the beautifully carved golden palace teak temples.
