monywa-01Monywa is the second biggest city after Mandalay in upper Myanmar.

Many Tourist destinations around Monywa make the city famous. They are as follows; Monywa Thanbude Temple; where you can see more than half a million Buddhas inside and outside the walls of the temple and also on the pillars in the vicinity of the temple,

The Tallest Standing Buddha; many people raise the question why the builder built such a huge one here on the hill instead of bettering the existing ones, sadly the answer will be hidden for good as the founder has passed away since a few years.

Nevertheless, you should not miss it when you make a visit to Monywa. The Second Biggest Reclining Buddha;  either you have an extra day to explore in the country or out of curiosity, you will never fail for sure to make a visit to that Buddha at the base of the standing one. The Bodhi Tahtaung Pagodas; as if in a maze, those Buddhas are in complete serene posture to manifest the peace and tranquility of the presence under his shadow.

Lastly Pho Win Taung Cave Pagodas which lie across the Chindwin River. Sand-stone caves with the murals and Buddha images in them will make your visit worthwhile.
