Very interesting. The entire structure is made of wood. Like all the other temples and pagodas, no shoes are allowed. I was a little concerned about splinters but it was fine. The cravings were beautiful.

Great trip to get there via boat, then horse and trap. Lovely views of paddy fields around the monastery. Mind your feet for holes in the teak. Nice place.

It seems history of the monastries in Mandalay are in teak and still it always amazes me how intricate they are.

This large teak monastery is worth a look if in Inwa. It is not a highly decorated as some of the others in Myanmar but worth a visit.

Interesting old monastery building built on large wooden pilings. The building itself is not highly decorated on the outside, but inside is indeed a treat. Not particularly a must-see, but plan a visit if you have the time.

This old monastery surrounded by tall palms and sundry foliage, is a masterpiece of Burmese wooden architecture. It rests on tall teak-wood pillars, with plank floorboards and roof. There is a tiered spire and there are carvings. It boasts of an old world charm, that's...More

You can also just rent a scooter and get there without using boats and horse carrigies, which personally I found to be a rip-off and very uncomfortable. You have to find the way though but i gues if you get a map this should... More
