I discovered the existance of A-Myint reading a guidebook where this visit was higly recommended.
I had about 3 hours free , while I was in Monywa and I had to choose between the visit of Thambodddday Paya and of this unknown village and I decided for the second . It was a very lucky decision .
To get there , you must do about 20 km along a bad dusty road full of potholes . But the landscape along both sides of the road is enchanting , with fields between the jungle , a lot peasants working the land helped by domestic animals such as cows and buffaloes . I noticed that at on side of the road , some people were working to bring electricity which , until now , lacks in this area.The village was a real surprise . A new village of wooden huts has expanded near the banks of Chindwind river in the middle of the lush vegetation . But the most amazing surprise were the 336 stupas around which the new village has grown dating from the 14th century . Some of them are quite big ! The central complex of stupas has been restored and cleared of vegetation . However it is a loosing battle as many of the stupas are partially covered again by the advancing jungle . In the middle of the complex there are 2 wooden monasteries , The smaller monastry houses only one old monk who was very eager to invite us to drink tea inside . All around the central complex , there are hundreds of crumbling stupas , almost completely covered by plants . Obviously everything it is completely unattended and we were greeted by smiling children who had just finished lessons in the village primary school . If you want they can help you to visit around .
This was one of the best visit of my third time in Myanmar which is a country which has a lot of hidden jewels to discover !

A Nyeint and A Myint Villages were famous attraction among the foreign travelers. Later, it was little-known and out of reach for travelers. We can see many ruined pagodas, brick monuments, mural paintings and wooden monastery. We love really this place. This historic site is really precious for observing heritages. Now, it is popular again among the historians, students and travelers. The residents in the village are very friendly and we can touch with very typical local lives at Anyar Region.

The place reminds very much Indein Pagoda near Inle lake . Same type of architecture. It doesn't look maintained, what I found interesting are the paintings on the wall in one of the pagodas , just beautiful.
Takes about 30-40 minutes from the by motorbike .

Hidden jewel of Myanmar, the village was a real surprise . A new village of wooden huts has expanded near the banks of Chindwind river in the middle of the lush vegetation. 336 stupas around which the new village has grown dating from the 14th century gives a rich of history and scenery. In the middle of the complex there are 2 wooden monasteries. The smaller monastery houses only one old monk who was very eager to invite us to drink tea inside. If you want they can help you to visit around.

Went to this village by motorbike. Because they are recontructing the road it's very dusty. You can take another road, this is a longer distance, but shorter in time becaused it's paved.

The temples are very beautiful. Really like that it is not that restored. Loved the beautiful old mural paintings in one of the temples. We were the only ones there.

It was painful getting there, nearly two hours one way from Monywa on bumpy road. They were repairing parts of the road after the floods so we were stuck behind trucks for some way. I think a car would have been worse because it's a thin causeway all the way with lots of motorbike traffic. Towards the end we had doubts whether we should have come. But the site is quite amazing, crumbling pagodas, jungle, statues, grazing cows, busy but peaceful village all mixed together. We were glad we went. Apart from wandering the ruins and looking at village houses there's not much to do. We spent 90 mins there. It would be great to have a interpreter there to chat to people. The hotel quoted us 30K/40K kyat for tuk tuk/car, but we negotiated with a driver we met at the bus station for half as much.

Friendly people who've hardly seen any foreigners. Not touristy at all. We stopped by on a motorcycle day trip. Charming time with some ancient stupas, but nothing spectacular.

A mini Bagan without all the tourists. Love love this place. Hard to get to but once there it’s all your. Just you and 800 year-old temples and stupas. Can’t imagine that this will stay off the tourist pipeline much longer but until then. One of my favs in all of all Myanmar.

If you are interested in a typical village with a mass of old pagodas and ruins in the center, it's worth going there. Of course, don't expect a collection of pagodas like Insein or Kakku, but the place is untouched, quiet and you'll walk around in silence.
Don't miss the old wodden monestary around the corner. I had a nice chat and some shared cigarettes with the abbot who was excited too meet foreigners.
If you like to interact with the people try to find a driver speaking English who can translate for you. Driving is 1,5 hours from Monywa. When I visited this summer, the road was under bad condition but under construction, at the moment best was going there by motorbike or tuk-tuk.
If you stay in Monywa, it's a nice half-day trip to the countryside.
