Just stunning walking around the biggest book in the world and every page has its own Stupa/temple. Another great thing to see in Mandalay.

Very close and very similar to the most famous Kuthodaw Pagoda - world's largest book, this temple looks like its copy. If you've explored the bigger one before, you wont need much time here but to make some terrific pics.

The photos work well in full sunlight, and I'd put this one in early on the trip before temple exhaustion sets in.

This is an awesome pagoda in Mandalay‘s rich landscape of pagodas. Stunning against the blue skyline

This is not your usual lending library. To a Buddhist it is the only place where the original guidelines to life are written and preserved in stone.

Lovely site and it's not overrun by tourists. You have some vendors there but they're not too pushy and they're fun to talk to (as they speak some English in contrast to most other Burmese). Beautiful building go visit it before you climb up Mandalay...More

Another stunning beauty in Mandalay, right behind Guthauraw pagoda. Well worth a visit and a few hundred photos. The history behind here is very interesting. This being the place of the 4th meeting of Buddhists to discuss what Buddha said and note it down on...More

This place is similar to Kuthodaw with the world’s largest book. This also have stones with inscriptions in small white pagodas. Combine the visit with Kuthodaw just before climbing Mandalay Hill. Bring wet tissues to wash your feet afterwards. No shoes allowed.
