Temple
M30***11
"This temple is considered to be a very big temple in Mandela. Men can buy gold leaf to gild the Buddha, while women can only watch outside and cannot approach the Buddha. There are quite a few monks living around the Mahamuni Pagoda, because they believe that living here can be sheltered by the Buddha."

金媛 Amy Jin
"The name of Mandalay also comes from the highest mountain in the city, the Mandalay Mountain, which Sakyamuni passed by while preaching the Dharma, pointing to the vast land below and predicting a prosperous city after 2400 years. Mandalay did not fail to live up to his expectations, and under King Mindong, 30 years of glory have been dotted in history as a monumental page."

"Seeing many ancient buildings, there are indeed very moving buildings, such as the pyramids of Egypt, the Taj Mahal in India, and Angkor Wat in Cambodia, but no imagination has been prepared for the Burmese Great Golden Pagoda. I really did not expect that the Great Golden Pagoda is so great."

"Gudu Tao Pagoda is near the Golden Palace Monastery, opposite to Shandamuni Monastery, not far from Mandalay Hill. 🚗Traffic strategy: It can be reached by taxi. Unreachable by public transportation. The fare is 8,000 kyats 💰Ticket price: Mandalay pass burmese 10,000 to visit the Kudutao Pagoda. 📌Little Tips: It’s better to do your homework before going. On the opposite side is the Shandamuni Temple, which is a steeple stupa. If you don't have time, you can choose one of the two. They are all similar stupas."

"The Xiyingbin Monastery, an elegant wooden monastery located between the city center and the Mahmoni Tower, dates back to 1895, when the wealthy Chinese jade merchants funded it. The monastery is similar in structure to the Hemu Temple, but its exquisite carvings seem to be even better. After more than 100 years of wind and rain, the appearance has completely turned brown and black, but the exquisite wood carvings are still visible and more solemn! There are not many tourists here, you can calm down to slowly enjoy and savor! Such a complex and exquisite wood carving I do not know how much craftsmen spent in the year!"

"The Mahaganayan Monastery is one of the largest and most advanced monastery in Myanmar, with a history of more than 100 years and currently home to thousands of monks. It is like a monastery university with nearly 2,000 students and a spectacular sight. The most famous monastery is the "Mengren's meal" held every morning. Every morning, tourists from all over the world gather at 10 a.m. to watch thousands of monks lunch together. Before the time arrived, visitors had been standing in position early to take pictures. On their way to the canteen, the monks came out of their houses barefooted and carrying their quails. Most of them looked straight in the eye, their faces were calm and calm, and they kept their calmness and ease. In the curious eyes of tourists, they enter the canteen to eat in an orderly manner. Myanmar men must become monk once in their lifetime, often for as long as possible, and sometimes for life. More for years, months, or even a week or two. Generally, when the boy is around 5--10, the parents are ready to prepare the rite of renunciation, which is very important for every family. The monks, large and small, all bow down, look straight, and ignore whatever donation, this is the true Buddha heart."

"🌟Highlights and features: Xinbi Mei Pagoda is named after its unique shape, resembling butter cake, and its steps look very similar to butter cake decorating, very beautiful. Xinbmei Pagoda is one of the few pagodas that can be climbed. Most of the pagodas in Myanmar cannot be climbed. It is rare that there is a pagoda that can be climbed. I really like it."

"The Shandamuni Monastery in Myanmar is located on the southern side of the famous Mandalay Mountain, and is very close to the Gutu Tao Pagoda.

"Shandamuni Temple and Kukdo Pagoda are really similar, and the geographical location is so close. In the end, I was a little confused whether the two places were confused by my memory. They all need the White Tower, which is simply a check-in location for tourists who are young and fresh in literature and art. The rows of white pagodas along the way are a must for photography enthusiasts. I saw a lot of excellent photos on tripadvisor. Unfortunately, it was cloudy and rainy on the day of the visit. It was very scenic. Even in the dry season, there is still a chance to rain."

"We took a boat to sit on the opposite bank, and then we changed to a carriage. A carriage for two people cost 10,000 kyats. We took us to four scenic spots, one of them. Personally, I think Invar is worth a visit. There are historic sites and beautiful rural scenery, and of course the people are not bad. recommend. The floor is very dangerous. Many nails have been raised. Be careful when walking barefoot on it. The interior is very dim and damp, but the three-dimensional wood carvings are really beautiful. Where there are tickets, they are not well maintained. If it is a fare If it is too low, you can really adjust it, otherwise you can see the original beauty, but it is a pity to lose it because of neglect."

"The palace is a very large structure completely rebuilt but without special interest. The furniture in the throne room is outdated. To enjoy the view, you must climb the circular staircase, which can be accessed through the wooden staircase. The completely redone complex has no soul and no interest, so it is not worth visiting."
