Nice, but in sad condition

It is almost all what is left from kings palace. Sad to see, that nobody renovates this tower. I would not be surprised if it falls down one day!

After the earthquake of November 11 , 2015 , Government doesn't allow to climb up to the top of Watch Tower! It is only one surviving building left from Old Innwa Royal Palace. The 30 Meters High masonry Watch Tower ( Called it in Burmese as Nan Myint Watch Tower! ) is leaning toward west. It is constructed in 1822... More

This is not much more than a rebuild leaning pile of bricks. It's not allowed to climb it and enjoy a better view of the surroundings, all you can do is walk around it and have a look. Not worth the drive unless you happen to cross it on your way to something else

Built with an exquisite understanding of positioning this tower and its restaurant has a 360 view of the awe inspiring temple complex with pagodas and stupas dotting the horizon for as the eye can see. The restaurant has an excellent local menu and a passable western menu and they serve Mandalay beer!! Service is typical of Myanmar which is excellent.... More

Loved to climb up there, as I knew last months, it was banned to go up as it strength got weak. It feeling itchy in my feet as I went up. Retangular verandah at each floor, spiral stairs to the top, so steep, woo! I am afraid of but funny.

It's too broken to go up, so you could only view from the ground. It's just a normal tower but good to take a look.

This is one of the stop on the Inwa tour. There is no need to stop here for long as it is not allowed to climb up the tower.

As the tower is slanted, public is not allow to go up to the tower. Only can photos outside. But did not see any tourist stop there. We also only stop over to take one photo only.

You can see it among the trees while you approach it by horse car. It's a compulsory stop during the touristic visit to the old capital of Myanmar, Innwa (or Ava). The most curious is that is a leaning tower, affected by the different earthquakes that happened during the last years wich have damaged it quite a lot. Although there... More
