This is a very beautiful pagoda and the book is quite amazing to see. You should have a guide to explain the whole deal behind the “book” though. It makes it much better of a visit. The pagoda itself is a beautiful golden lustre.

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!

Hundreds of identical small white pagodas containing the Buddhist scriptures inscribed on stone tablets ,laid out in straight rows makes for quite a sight ! This is the world’s largest book .
