想想冬至
"If Mandalay is a modern city (in fact, Mandalay, where construction sites and scaffolding are everywhere, is indeed in a thriving development), the charm of the historical sites around the city far exceeds Mandalay itself. Among them is the ancient city of Invar, which is full of rustic charm. The ancient city of Inwa in history has become the capital of Myanmar four times (and the Upper Burma area is often referred to as the "Invar Kingdom"). From this simple figure, we can see the complex emotional attitudes of the rulers of the past dynasties. , Love and hate, hard to leave. Rich history aside, here is still an isolated village sparsely dotted with ruins, temples and pagodas. Compared with the prosperity of Mandalay, it looks so quiet, primitive and mysterious. To reach the ancient city of Invar, a ferry is essential. Although only a few minutes' voyage, this mode of transportation puts Invar on a veil of mystery. The man at the helm of our ferry is a little brother with a neat row of teeth, but the betel nut has painted them yellow and black. However, this does not hinder the infectiousness of his smile-clean, direct, and sincere. When traveling in the ancient city, horse-drawn carriages are the first choice for most tourists. Of course, people with more energy and energy will choose bicycles because they can visit more secluded villages and discover surprises and beauty beyond the regular routes of horse-drawn carriages. The main attractions of Inwa include Baogaya Temple, Nammin, Maha Angmei Temple, etc. However, there will be many ancient temples and old city walls hidden among street trees along the way, although they have been abandoned for many years Although it is ruined, it is more interesting and charming. Rice fields can be seen everywhere in the ancient city of Invar, lush and vibrant, just like this country, although it was once devastated, there is still a future for Nirvana."

山水人生
"The last attraction to visit in the ancient city of Inva is the Maha'angme Temple, which is said to have been built by a 19th century queen. Cars carried us through the fields and through the villages, mostly with the tourists, and occasionally the locals riding the shabby bicycles. Sometimes cars were seen passing by. Arriving at the Maha'angme Monastery, the towers of this larger masonry structure are a little more new than the others that look. The original wooden structure of the Maha'angmei temple, the representative of the 19th century tributary dynasty, was destroyed by an earthquake in 1838, and was restored and rebuilt in 1872, all of them stone, so it looks a bit like an old castle. Today, the old dark yellow walls are covered with beautiful carvings, which confirm the vicissitudes of the years and the erosion of the rain and wind. Because of the time, we did not take off our shoes and socks to go inside, but just around the outside, to see the style and features of the entire building. Inside the temple compound, outside the apparently worn-out Maha'angmei temple, several new pagodas are built around it. Although the white pagodas are especially dazzling in the sun and the sculptures are beautiful, they are in front of the quaint and worn temple buildings. There is no foundation, which is probably the charm and temperament of the architecture given by history."
