Itinerary

Mandalay - Monywa - Mandalay Full Day

In the early morning at 07:00 A.M., your guide will pick you up at your hotel in Mandalay, and then drive to Monywa (150 km – approx. 2 hours). Arrive Monywa and continue to visit a sandstone cave system in the Pho Win Hills, named after a famous 'zawgyi' (alchemist) who once lived here. The Caves of Pho Win Taung, numbering more than one hundred, are full of Buddhist statues and murals. Most exhibit the Innwa style but some may date from the 14th Century. Nearby, visit Shwe Ba Taung which features unique pavilions cut from the surrounding sandstone and filled with Buddha images. Enjoy your lunch at a local restaurant.
Then visit Moenyin Thanboddhay Pagoda, which is about 20 Kilometers from Monywa. The richly decorated central stupa has no less than 845 smaller stupas around it. Inside the patio, you will see thousands of Buddha images (reportedly over 500,000) decorating every wall, archway and niche. The buildings in the compound have interesting jataka relieves and there is a huge Reclining Buddha (Shwe Thar Lyaung Pagoda) nearby.
Following sights includes: Aungset Kya Pagoda, Bodhitahtaung Pagoda, where you will see 1000 Bo trees with sitting Buddha images, Laykyun Sakkya Yattawmu Pagoda, famous as the world’s tallest standing Buddha image and after that drive back to your hotel in Mandalay.
