Shwesandaw Pagoda Reviews
以前はここの階段を登って、夕日を見るのがバガンの一つの名物でしたが、今は登ることは禁じられています。今は、夕日、朝日を見るのは、公認の朝日用と夕日用の展望台へ行きます。 more »It was one of the specialties of Bagan to climb the stairs here and watch the sunset, but it is forbidden to ascend now. Now, to see the sun and the sun, we go to the Observatory for the official Asahi and sunset.
Bien sûr il est intéressant de visiter l’ensemble de Bagan . Une partie est en réfection, mais à ne pas louper quand même. Un commentaire est nécessaire pour connaître la vie du site . more »Of course it is interesting to visit the whole of Bagan. Some of it is being repaired, but not to be missed anyway. A comment is needed to know the life of the site.
Nice pagoda but fairly average in the region now you can't go up, since the 2017 rainfall caused destruction to the southeast corner. For sunset try thatbinnyu nearby instead, equal numbers of vendors but better view, bigger pagoda and you can go up to the first level for a panoramic view of the sunset
Shwesandaw Pagoda is located in Bagan region, Mandalay division. There is usually crowed in the evening, many foreigners and local people wait to see sunset and allowed everyone to climb at the top of pagoda but everyone should have respect tradition by obeying the rules and regulations in that area.
