Clean, beautiful and with only a few annoying sellers at the entrance. This place has wonderful examples of design. The incredible gold leaf everywhere, gives it an other worldly feeling. You have many opportunities to respectfully observe devotees in pray including nuns and monks.

We visited this Pagoda grounds during a tour of Mandalay. All of the structures, Buddhas and outbuildings are beautiful and definitely should not be missed while in the area.

Take you camera and you will get some amazing pictures. You have to pay a local currency fee of 100 to use it. But the pictures are worth it.
