Absolutely amazing site - we had a guide to explain everything, or else read up the history before you go.

We have never sen anything like it, tombs with two pages of the Koran inscribed in stone for all to read inside of each one. It is the biggest book in the world and made of the most unusual substance. Well worth a visit.

The Kuthodaw Pagoda has the world's biggest book, a copy of the Buddhist scriptures. This book has been listed by UNESCO as a world heritage site. Visitors are welcome, but please remember that this is a religious site and you may have to comply with dress restrictions, that is, both males and females must cover their knees.

Beautiful Pagoda keeping the full « Titipaka » (Buddha s scriptures).
Both the numerous white Stupas and the internal of the Pagoda are beautiful.

Near the foot of Mandalay Hill this pagoda complex has over 700 shrines , each housing a large marble tablet engraved with scripture. The pagoda itself dominates the skyline and the whole area is very peaceful, despite the large number of daily visitors
