"Visit Mandalay and the Shwe..." Myanmar (Burma) Favorite Tip by Volare
Myanmar (Burma) General: 190 reviews and 207 photos
Favorite thing: Visit Mandalay and the Shwe Nan Daw Kyaung or Golden palace. This wooden made monastry is the only original part of the old Golden palace complex. The rest was bombed by the Allies in the II WW as it had become a japanese base. Therefore the fortress which was the center of the complex is today just a reconstruction. The monastery was build by king Mindon in 1878 who was the penultimate king of Myanmar and died murdered by his son.
