  • Super photogenic! Other than the fact that this is the world's largest book, it is also a super photogenic place for you to get as many great pictures as you want! I love white marble so I love this place!

  • Ancient pagoda with famous name of "World Biggest Book". Must go and visit if you arrive to Mandalay.

  • Architecturally impressive and beautiful. Scores of small white pagodas arranged geometrically are dazzling in the sunlight. It's a short walk from Mandalay Hill so should be included in the itinerary.

  • A nice place to visit. Beautiful Buddhist architecture.

  • look out for the world's largest book in this pagoda. Nice and peaceful place.
