  • The original place was destroy during WWII. So everything is a reproduction. Mandalay is not worth a visit but if you go the palace is probably the most interesting place to visit in the city.  more »
  • Originally built between 1857 and 1859, and reconstructed in the 1990s. Nice architecture of the wooden buildings. Good views from the spiral watchtower. Magnificent multilayered pyramid.  more »
