We went to the village of Mingun, on the opposite bank of the Ayeyarwady River , and visited the white “Settawya Paya” in which there is a marble footprint of Buddha . Then we visited the “Mingun Paya” a pagoda with a colossal size, never completed and heavily damaged by an earthquake in 1838.
And finally the “Hsinbyume Paya” , modelled according to the Buddhist idea of the cosmos.
It was interesting to see the floating islands going downstream; on these islands, made by a large quantity of tree trunks tied together, live the families of the transporters.
