We left Yangon to visit Mandalay, which was the last royal capital of Burma, on the banks of the Ayeyarwady River .
The “Shwenandaw Kyaung” monastery, made in teak wood, was a hall of the Royal Palace which was moved and turned into a monastery, before the fire that destroyed the Royal Palace .
The “Kuthodaw Paya” surrounded by 729 small white stupa each containing a marble slab inscribed with a page of the Buddhist canon and the “Mahamuni Paya” with an image of the seated Buddha covered with golden leaves applied by devotees; due to these applications, the image has reached the thickness of 15 cm and the original features have changed. Finally, we saw the U Bein bridge, the longest teak bridge in the world (1200 meters) .
