This is a miniature version of Kuthodaw Pagoda's white stupas. They're still big though. It's fairly quiet compared to Kuthodaw so you can always take the time to walk around and take more pictures. The view from here of Mandalay Hill is quite impressive as well.

This "big book" seems more condensed than Kudhodaw and I found it to be more clean and easier on your feet. The views with Mandalay Hill in the background are also nice. You can't actually go into the small pagodas which contain the "book" but you will be lead into the larger pagoda in the middle of it. Nice and... More

Really enjoyed strolling round here. The uniformity and white colour of the stupas make for a calming influence. The Buddhist Scriptures are also very impressive. Lovely experience.

A lovely place to wander around and view the beautiful white Stupas which are all aligned in rows. Very picturesque. Not very busy so you can wander and enjoy the sights.

One of the best attraction I saw in Mandalaw as it is simple but beautiful. I just liked to walk through, this is such a beautiful experience. For me, it was the best of all I have seen.

Has a unique Buddha image, and its surrounding Stupa’s make it more of an attraction, but is best viewed in conjunction with the neighboring Kuthodaw Pagoda, than on its own.

Nice grounds with long shaded walk towards the temple. The white pagodas aligned in multiple rows on each side are very picturesque and they are sheltering the writings of Buddha created by a hermit. Interesting and close to other top sights so recommend when in the area

Lovely site - fascinating and very interesting. To me, the hundreds of white small stupas with the inscription from the writings of the Buddhist religion, were the highlight of the visit.

There are hundreds of pagodas arranged in a matrix. Each Pagoda contains part of the Buddhist bible. You can go to each pagoda to meditate and learn. When you are ready to move on there is always the next pagoda.

The design of Sanda Muni is very close to that of Kuthodaw, but since it's so close, our driver dropped us off there too and we walked through it. Equally beautiful~
