The ground is very hot to walk on. Bring shoes you can slip on and off. Also the umbrella was helpful. Definitely worth going. Amazing all these carved tablets. History is great.

Nice Pagoda with many small pagodas (sorry, not sure how to call them) around it. Not many tourists in there and very close to the Mandalay hill.
The Kuthodaw is a beautiful gilt and gold stupa surrounded by 729 text-inscribed marble slabs. An awesome place to see the story of the entire 15 books of the Tripitaka. I strongly recommends this place to all visiting Mandalay.
5th edition of Buddha philosophy by Myanmar king Mindone is inscripted on stone slabs making it largest book of the world. Long standing big trees give cool shades and architecture of multiple houses for each page of stone is frecternal.
No shoes and socks in and around the temple. With the summer heat and humidity, the temperature was at 102F. Impossible to walk barefoot. The place is huge with many beautiful opportunities for gorgeous pictures... but we give up after few steps. 😫
