The Bargaya Monastery is dedicated to Shin Dhammabhinanda and is one of the most popular attractions not just in Mandalay but in the whole country. The monastery dates back to the late 16th century and is completely made in Teak wood (believed to use 267 gigantic teak wood posts!). The monastery accommodates a seven-tiered spire that has the Dhanu hall and the Bhawga hall. The beautiful Burmese décor along with carvings and art work that dates back to the Inwa Era, holds the charm of the place.

Another "must see" item that can be skipped unless you have plenty of time to go out here. Bring a powerful bright torch: it's so dark inside you can not see anything! The huge teak columns are impressive but the Shwenandaw in town is a far better monastery worth your visit
I think this place is one of the most authentic old places. You can ride a horse cart to get to there or rent a car. The place needs some restoration work but I think the lack of retouching also maybe what’s making it more attractive for visitors. But be prepared for lack of hygienic restaurants and clean toilets since it is located in a rural area.
Wonderful man-crafted teak Buddhist hall. A must see in Ava.
amazing Myanmar architectures
Super pretty all wooden antique temple.
