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.

Bagaya Kyaung Reviews & Ratings
Old monastery build with massive teak logs and some stones. Some wood carving but not much. You have to go barefoot but the ground didn't look very clean and it feet confirmed it, so be prepared to wipe your feet before getting back in your shoes. Some monks were studying which added some nice local color. It is very dark inside so brace your camera for long exposure.
An ancient monastery. Amazing foundation.
It is made of teakwood totally but it smells and dark inside.
