The monastery provides a golden moment in an otherwise glittering city. Teak to the bone. Not to be missed.

This monastery is part of the visits included with the zone fee. The wooden ornements are amazing, the beauty of every detail. Even the doors have panel with different scenes. Worth seeing, it is a genuine relic from the past.
This is an amazing teak building, with intricate carving inside and out. It used to be covered in gold leaf, and you can still see remnants of the gold leaf, especially in the teak pillars and the ceiling. I strongly recommend visiting Golden Palace Monastery....More
This building is the only one from within the old city walls to have survived bombing in WWII and that's because the then King ordered it to be dismantled, moved and reassembled in a different location to protect it. The remaining buildings were unfortunately destroyed....More
Looks very nice and intricate teak wooden carvings are amazing but is not looked after properly like lots of attractions in Myanmar, but worth a look if you are male as females are not allowed to enter as the sign says.
Monestaries were beautiful throughout Myanmar and this is a good one to see. In general though, the monestaries did not live up to my expectations; so, in my opinion, visiting two would be enough unless you are really into them.
Worth visiting this - amazing history and great to learn how this monastery was built and has survived over the years.
