Owner description: The Kuthodaw Paya houses "the world's largest book", 729 marble slabs of Buddhist scriptures.
Reviewed February 10, 2013

As all tourists we visited the world's largest book. Our guide had great knowledge and explained everything. He also mentioned that one should not wear shorts, short skirts or tops with straps. We saw many tourists running around like that! Surely because they did not know and the polite Birmese people don't say anything.
The pagoda and the marble plates with buddha's beliefs are impressing. You must visit, it is one of the centers of the Buddhist religion.

Row upon row upon row of carved pages each housed it its own stupa (?). It was a amazing sight. It's certainally worth a quick stop.

If I could only read all 729 of Buddha's teachings, then maybe I'd be ready for enlightenment?
This is a must see!

Pretty cool that all the teachings of Buddha are right here on 729 white stupas for all to read. I only wish that I am able to read all of these teachings!

This is a different temple from some of the others we saw. Very clean and all white. The book is large marble blocks that are all standing in rows. Very interesting and quite pretty.
