Big hall, small buddha

This place is pretty huge. The inside has a big hall that houses a small buddha. The hall could fit a few thousand people easy.

Just 30 minutes is enough for this monastery. Nothing attracting my interesting except taking some pictures at the front door. The monastery doesn't look well-cared for and the floor is very dirty. The hall looks empty, maybe there's a buddha statue and nothing else.

I was fortunate enough to coincidentally drop by during a ceremony. I have no idea what kind of ceremony it was, but it was very nice. Lots of monks chanting, walking around in a specific pattern, some drums, then some water being poured down the side steps. I felt fortunate to be able to observe this part of their culture... More

Completely rebuilt. Unusual style. It's nice but not up to the other sights around it. I would skip it and go up the Hill if I had to make a choice

Very white monastery, really nice and peaceful though to walk around and it is located near the other main pagodas so worth the little detour to visit.

worth a short visit id you are nearby. It was rebuilt according to the original plans in 1996. It does not come close to recreating the magnificence of the original building but looks quite impressive and different from the other monasteries and temples.

Beautiful from outside. Bright white bldg w/ Gold trim. Climb the stairs and enter a HUGE empty hall. I found that fun in a weird way. I've never been in a big empty room of that size. Usually there is something of many items like chairs, tables, etc occupying a vast space. This space was literally .....SPACE. Cool feeling to... More

It's a functioning religious building. You may find it empty when you visit because it doesn't have religious functions everyday. It's a great way to observe the environment where Burmese people practice Buddhism, in the past and today.

Big open space. The story behind it and of the seemingly tiny, but beautiful gold buddha statue and the end might be worth seeing. Give you a little bit of an idea what Mandalay went through during the wars. Other than that, not a super great place for pictures, etc.
