"Shwenandaw Paya - The Golden Palace Monastery" Top 5 Page for this destination Shwenandaw Kyaung (Teak Temple) Tip by herzog63

  Golden Monastary
by herzog63

This building is very interesting as it is all carved out of wood. And quite a bit of the outside is very weather worn! Without some serious restoration this Monastery will be dissapearing! I was suprised to see such a building. The inside is quite nice and cool. I enjoyed walking on the wooden floors! I guess at one time the outside was covered in some sort of Gold but that is all gone now.

Directions: Beside Atumashi Monastery near the northeast corner of the Royal City
