The beauty of the place is the vast amount of white pagodas surrounding the main golden Pagoda. Do visit if you have the time.

Really nice temple with hundreds of pagodas each housing a large tablet that together comprises the world's largest book. If you are lucky you might have the place almost to yourself. Well worth a visit!

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...More

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...More
