We went with a guide and it was the best decision we made for our holiday, it was not busy and we had a peaceful interesting time there, worth to visit to see hundreds of tablets inscribed with Buddha teaching.

From all temples in Mandalay, I found this is the most unique and interesting one! Guess everyone’s is different. As per usual, dress modestly is required, not showing anything above the knee or shoulder parts, you will need to take off your footwear before going in, there’s no camera fee!

Well worth exploring this interesting pagoda. It contains hundreds of tablets inscribed with the teachings of Buddha, each in a small pagoda/enclosure covering a large area. Hence the term “ worlds largest book”.

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