In Yadana Hsemee Pagoda, there is no exact history to talk about . But you can see and study the architecture of 17th century in this pagoda. Some historian say that these pagodas complex could be monastery or meditation center. Nowadays, we can't see the good condition because of the earthquakes of 1838. In the pagoda complex, there are small painting shop, you can enjoy.

A small complex (built in the 1400’s) with quality rather than quantity, this was our second last site/sight to see during our rickety, horse and cart tour at Innwa, most people had move on during our visit, (very nice) just us and a few touts (children), pushing there wares.

The other name is Yedanasini. It is one of the 4 most relevant sites to visit in Inwa. Like everything else in Inwa, the Yedanasini pagoda is also neglected. There is however, something magical about this place. There is a sense of grandiose times. There is a large seated Buddha surrounded by growing grass. It looks nice in pictures. The place reminds you the UNESCO sites of Sukhothai and Si Satchanalai in Thailand.

There re some vendors around it. They are nice.

The pagoda is small and does not have a roof. It is short visit (~30 minutes). You may arrive by horse cart or walking. If you take the horse cart, be sure that the driver brings you to the Yedanasani. Some may not do it as they want to rush the client to finish soon and get new clients.

Yadana means gem. Indeed it is a hidden gem tucked inside the fields. It is about 500 years old and successive earthquakes have damaged the roof and left the Buddha image open to the skies. But looking at the ruins, one can get a mental picture of how glorious it must have been when it was built. A nice cool place to visit.
You can also see some "blade artists" --- they use broken blades to paint black & white images of Burmese scenes. Do spend some time to appreciate their art.

Small complex of ruined but yet lovely brick stupas, Yadana Hsemee is a small group of pagodas. These pagodas showcase the development of brick monasteries.

A little group of pagodas on the Ava island with lots of possibilities for pictures. A few amazing Buddha statues are there. You can reach it by an adventurous horse cart ride.

Inwa has a circuit of about 4 sites to see. I think this one is the best. It is interesting to see the temple ruins being overtaken by nature. This is not very big and you won't spend a lot of time here but you can get some pretty shots and it has a serene feeling. The whole trip to Inwa doesn't take too long and something to do if you have the time. If you have to choose between Inwa and Mingun choose the latter.

Inwa (called Ava by the British) served as the Burmese capital for longer than any other city for over six centuries. It retains evocative temples, stupas and monasteries. A massive earthquake in 1839 left the city and its structures in ruins. Today Yadana Hsimi Pagodas is only a group of small stupas in ruins.

Note:
1. You can get to Inwa by private taxi from Mandalay or by boat from Sagaing across the river.

2. Yadana Hsimi Pagodas is usually accessed by a horse cart. It costs 10000 kyats per car up to two people (BTW, it is a very small cart, really don’t fit more than 2 people) for about 2 hours, including three other stops (Bagaya Monastery, Bonzan Monastery and Palace Tower).

3. Yadana Hsimi Pagodas is a very small pagoda, go in the morning if you want to take better picture of the Buddhas (the big buddha with two small buddhas beside him) otherwise sun is behind the subjects.

The whole area of Inn Wa was one of my favourite places to explore, reminded me a little of Ankor, on a smaller less busy scale, if that's your thing!
