Inside of this pagoda there is a large meeting room - the largest one we have seen in Mandalay. But, as the monastery had burned several times, do not expect some fancy interior.

It can be hard to tell one Monastery from the other after having spent a whole day in Mandalay. But this is one to remember. Beautiful in white and gold. No shoes allowed so bring wet tissues to wash your feet afterwards. Allow yourself 30...More

Ancient pagoda, calm, quite & peaceful. A walk around the pagoda re-energizes the body, mind & soul. Absolute silence except for the tinkling of the little bells on the top of the pagoda. Must visit place

There isn't much to do once you're inside really. This place is right behind Shwenandaw Monastery and it's a good place to avoid the heat for a short while.

This monastery is accross the street from Shwenandaw Pagoda. It's a nice thing to see but it is a huge and almost empty hall. It was very dusty inside.
