Atumashi Monastery entry comes free with the 10000 Kyat entry that you pay for the main site in Mandalay; The Golden Palace Monastery. 10000 Kyat is steep for entry but it is worth it for the main attraction and it's worth seeing Atumashi Monastery after...More

At times people forget where they are, this a great place and very busy with tourists, yes a little dirty but who cares, it is what it is, an interesting to visit and it helps you understand the culture.

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.

It was near Shwenandaw monastery. Visit is allowed with combo ticket. May be it looks ordinary near the old monastry

This is an impressive monastery hall and it is a quick 10 minute visit next to the impressive Shwe Nandaw Kyaung monestary. Good photo opportunity outside on the side near the huge golden doors.
