SAGAING : Once a 4th century capital city, capital, Sagaing lies 21 km south- west of Mandalay, beside the Ayeyarwaddy River. The Sagaing Hills are dotted with pagodas and there are over 500 monasteries, a retreat for some 6000 monks and nuns. In one sense, the city is still a nexus, although of reverence and devoutness, not political power. Soon U Ponya Shin Pagoda situated on the top of the Sagaing Hill, KaungHmudaw Pagoda (an impressive copy of the Mahaceti Pagoda in Sri Lanka), and many other local pagodas are of interest. Silver-smiths still fashion intricate and unique jewellery in Sagiang and their workshops are worth visiting to purchase eye-catching necklaces and bracelets are inexpensive prices.


IN-WA (Ava) : In-wa, situated 20 km (1 hr drive) southwest of Mandalay, was founded as the nucleus of the Myanmar empire in 1364 after the fall of Bagan to the Mongol army of Kublai Khan. It remained the seat of Myanmar kings for almost four centuries. Its original walled boundary was not geometric but shaped like a seated lion, similar to those that guard the entrances of many pagodas. Only a small part of this wall remains, the gated section where the ceremonial hair washing of the king took place. Stood as the The original name of In-Wa, Yadanarpura, meant City of Precious Gems.

Today In-wa is a small town and it would be easy to overlook its power and prominence in past centuries. Other local sights include the Nanmyint Watch Tower, the MahaAungmyeBonzan monastery and In-wa Bridge, spanning the Ayeyarwaddy River. Sightseeing is done by horse-cart due to the road condition, but this is a fascinating way to cover In-wa.


OTHER ATTRECTION : MINGUN, An hour boat excursion up river from Mandalay takes you to Mingun where you can see the vast picturesque ruin of King Bodawpaya's unfinished pagoda. Had he finished it to scale, following the much smaller initial model standing on the riverbank nearby, it would have been the world’s largest stupa but an astrological prediction in 1797, that the king would die upon its completion, put a stop to construction.

An earthquake in 1839 opened cracks in the huge structure. Opposite the pagoda you can also see the remains of colossal huge brick lions facing the river.

Mingun is one of the most visited places in the vicinity of Mandalay, well known for its Mingun Bell cast in 1790 under orders from King Bodawpaya and weighing 90 tons. Still suspended, the bell can be rung, making it the largest ringing bell in the world, and visitors can crouch under its extremities and stand inside its giant dome.

The boat-ride excursion to Mingun provides you with an excellent chance to sunbathe enjoying the beautiful scenery of the Ayeyarwaddy River. Allow half a day for the visit.
