An original wooden structure built 1895 so surprisingly not too old. Ornately carved and decorated with various carvings and untouched features. There is not a lot to see inside except the many large wooden pillars providing the roof support.

This is the most beautiful teak monastery and is right in the middle of Mandalay city. It was fortunately moved, I beleive, from the palace complex by the King before the British deposed him and took his palace. It would have been razed to the ground along with the rest of the complex and this beauty would have been lost to us.
The carvings are fabulous and so full of interest and personality. It's worth going slowly just to notice them properly. I think one of the nicest things about the teak monasteries is the air of calm and tranquility and the lovely play of light and shade on the wood, interspersed with relatively little gilding. Easy on the eye.

Even Shwenandaw Monastery ( Golden Palace Monastery ) that is located near Mandalay Hill is nice to see , it's not really Myanmar typical monastery in Mandalay. Mandalay has totally 8 wooden monasteries before Second World War & Seven Monasteries were destroyed by fire during War. Shweinpin Monastery is only surviving wooden monastery in Mandalay. Every tourist should not miss to visit there. It's surely worth to visit to study Myanmar typical monastery architecture!

This is one of the old monastary in Mandalay.What unique about this monastary is its design are influence by Chinese culture such as Dragons and Arch.In burmese culture you don't usually find dragons in wood ladder(step).And inside the monastary you can find the antique objects and Paints which are drawn by former Famous painter.In its compound monks are still living.Overall;Nice,clean,quiet(when i got there)and one and only chinese mix monastary in Mandalay( I think).There is nearby Old monastary called Thin-Ga-Zar Monastary and for about 7min you can also go to Irrawaddy river banks.Hope this is helpful.:-)

I really liked this building and its atmosphere of tranquillity and spirituality.
It has the most amazing layout, and the detailed carvings are stunning.
However, it is sadly falling to ruin, due to exposure to the elements and the traffic of visitors.
Maybe a solution is to charge an entrance fee? That way they can accumulate money to start a restoration project. Or some wealthy local could sponsor its restoration?

An absolutely stunning building which defies its actual age by giving the appearance of being centuries old. Absolute exquisite carvings, both externally and internally. Resident monks are also very accommodating of wandering visitors. A must-see sight in Mandalay.

This was one of our favorite places we visited in Myanmar. Go early in the morning (we were there between 8 & 9 a.m.) and you will likely be the only one there. The carvings are beautiful and the atmosphere is peaceful.

Shwe In Bin Monastery was one of the monasteries that escaped from the World War (2) destruction. It was built in 1895. A Chinese merchant, U Set Shwin, donated it. It is a typical monastery which has Myanmar architectural features. Four major rooms can be seen in this monastery. They are Zeytawun saung (the room for keeping Buddha image), Sa-Nu saung (the sleeping chamber of monks), Saung-Ma-Gyi (Prayer Hall) and Baw-Ga saung (the store room).
