Inside of this pagoda there is a large meeting room - the largest one we have seen in Mandalay. But, as the monastery had burned several times, do not expect some fancy interior.

Ancient pagoda, calm, quite & peaceful. A walk around the pagoda re-energizes the body, mind & soul. Absolute silence except for the tinkling of the little bells on the top of the pagoda. Must visit place

A beautiful former Buddhist Monastery formerly known as Mahā Atulaveyan Kyaung-daw-gyi which, surprisingly, served as a British troop barracks. It burned down as an almost total loss in 1890 but was rebuilt by the government in the mid-1990s. Thus the reason for being in such...More

There isn't much to do once you're inside really. This place is right behind Shwenandaw Monastery and it's a good place to avoid the heat for a short while.
