Mandalay Fort

After our 18 hour bus ride from Yangon and finding a hotel we started our exploration of Mandalay. Just hearing the word Mandalay conjured up all kinds of exotic images in my mind. I didn't know what to really expect. But we where about to find out. Our hotel was pretty close to the Mandalay Fort so I figured we'ed attack that first!
The photo is actually taken at sunrise the next morning.

    Your page brought tears to my eyes! Dad taught me Kipling's poem, two cousins captive there in WW2 . Such mystical beauty in your stories and pictures. Hard to equate with current situation. Thanks for your view.

    I always thought of Mandalay as a mystical, mythical sort of place. Thanks for bringing it to life through your pages & photos.

    If there are 729 stupas and each one holds the info from a single page, why does it take 38 volumes of 400 pages to put on paper?

    Delightful page! Eighteen hour journey with natural air conditioning sounds like a fun trip to do :) Lovely pictures of Kuthodaw Paya and the Mandalay fort ... amazing reflections.
