Shwe In Bin Kyaung

The large and elegent Shwe In Bin Kyaung dates from 1895, when a pair of wealthy Chinese jade marchants commissioned it.
Called simply "The Teak Monastry" by many locals, the central building stands elevated on tall poles, and its balustrades and roof cornices, are covered in detailed engravings.
It's incredibly peaceful and seldom crowded.
