Yet another fascinating and unique monastery to visit! Great photo ops all around this place! I would allow a minimum of an hour to really explore it well. Do not miss it if you are in the area!

I like the architectural style of this monastery. It was beautiful and unique. The floor would be very hot during the daytime. There was nothing inside but some teenagers chitchatting. Anyway, you can have nice photographs and appreciate the beauty of the structure.

So old.. so rustic... the color glows absolutely beautiful. The drive there is amazing through tons of farmland and rural area. Driving through banana fields and sunflowers makes it even more enjoyable.

This is perhaps the largest and most impressive site in Inwa. It has an interesting history. It was built in the nineteenth century. Therefore, it is a Konbaung style building. It is made of bricks and stucco. It is one of the very few surviving...More

This monastery was commissioned by a Queen, when many buildings were made of teak. This is one of the early examples of architecture when they were changing to brick and mortar structures. So, some of the facades and stuccos resemble wood-carvings. A lovely place.

Once I saw Maha Aung Mye Bon Zan monastery from its entrance gate about 100 feet away, it reminded me of the imposing temples on the Bagan plains. This very massive brickwork with an elegant architure that can rival the Damayangyi temple in Bagan has...More
