The last capital of royal Myanmar, Mandalay is still one of the largest cities in Myanmar, and a cultural and spiritual center. In the morning, head to Mahamuni Pagoda, the image enshrined here is perhaps the most venerated image in Myanmar, covered in over 15 cm thickness of gold leaf. Worshippers flock daily to the shrine at four in the morning to observe the unique face-washing ceremony. En-route to the pagoda, stop to observe the laborious process of Gold-Leaf Beating, where gold is painstakingly hammered into tissue-thin squares. The afternoon’s tour includes some of the city’s most interesting temples and palaces. Begin with Shwenandaw Kyaung (Shwe Kyaung), the Golden Teak Monastery. Built entirely of golden teak, this intricately carved wooden monastery was one part of the Mandalay Palace, used as private apartments by King Mindon and his chief queen. Then to Kuthodaw Pagoda, known also as the world’s biggest book. Around the central stupa are miniature pavilions, each housing a slab of marble. Numbering altogether 729, these slabs are inscribed with the entire Tripitkata, or Buddhist scriptures. Continue to Kyauktawgyi Pagoda, famous for its monumental seated Buddha, carved from a single block of marble. Finally, enjoy the spectacular sunset at Mandalay Hill, 230 metres in elevation, commands a magnificent view of the city and surrounding countryside. Overnight stay at the hotel in Mandalay.
