I'm sure you'll be visiting many other sights in Mandalay, so do include this one. Not quite a "book" but I won't give too much away and spoil it for you.

Great to walk among the pages stretching into the distance. Free too if you're trying to avoid the pay places.

This was quite an amazing pagoda and worth a visit we were fortunate enough to see a snake charmer outside which added to the experience.

This pristine group of Stupas house the world largest book some 729 marble tablets of Buddhist doctrine. The site has now been registered under the World Heritage programme and a peaceful wander through the site is pretty awe inspiring.
