A visit to Mandalay would be incomplete without a wander around Shwenandaw Monastery (or the Golden Palace Monastery), the historical landmark constructed the 1800s by King Mindon and initially situated in Mandalay Palace. After King Mindon had passed away, his successor, King Thibw, moved the monastery to the present site. It is the sole main survivor of the previous wooden Royal Palace among the most noteworthy of Mandalay’s historic structures. This monastery is extraordinary not only because it is a fine illustration of a traditional Myanmar wooden monastery, but also because it a delicate indication of the old Mandalay Fort. The building is wrapped with carved panels and the whole building is covered with gold, though unfortunately this gold cover have been damaged as a result of bad weather. Serve as on the Myanmar’s major tourist spots, Shwenandaw Monastery welcomes visitors from 10am to 6am every day.
