Mandalay Hill, Mandalay Reviews

  • We were lucky enough to arrive in the city and to be transported right away in this amazing temple. The sunset light was the best thing and all the colours of the walls and decorations irradiated brightness and sparkles. The monks were super nice, they came talking to us (to practice their English as we later discovered), they were curious and kind. Amazing experience :-)

  • Nice hill and temple, excellent views across the city and to the river. Quite busy during weekends and at sunset/sunrise. Lots of salesman in the temple, and sometimes they seem to charge foreigners $1 to enter, but it seems to depend on their mood...

  • At the top of the Mountain , there is a Buddha image in Temple. You can see the beauty of Mandalay town's view in nature around the hill. and you can rent scope to look zoom in . Also nice place to take photo with nature background.

  • I want to suggest you to watch sunset from here. It is a best place to get above view over Mandalay city , mandalay Palace , Sagaing hills and Irrawaddy river.
