It is beautiful and little diferent than other pagodas so it is worth of seeing
Largest "book" on Earth is actually a bunch of giant stone steles (tablets) in their own little roofed houses. Lots of other temples around within walking distance.
The staff were very nice to us here. Also a very beautiful spot.
Free entry, best to visit early morning or late afternoon for 1-2 hour.
It is one of the must visit places in Mandalay and it is also one of the most famous pagodas in Myanmar. There are many pagodas and century-old trees. It is a great place to take a photo. The pagodas are all white so it can make your mind please. It is a very good place to visit in Mandalay.
