It is one of the largest monasteries at least near Mandaly. There are about 2000 monks of all ages who live here and the time to visit this is around 10 am. There is a procession of monks who walk to the monastery hall for their main meal of the day. The day we visited there were literally thousands of visitors on a pilgrimage and it was difficult to see what is going on. Nevertheless it is worth making a bee line to see this historic as well as present day monastery for a different perspective on a monk's lifestyle and living conditions.
