Visit Monywa, Myanmar (Burma)

Monywa is an interesting town to explore and a useful stop if making the journey overland between Mandalay and Bagan. It's also worth visiting the impressive temples and sandstone caves of Hpo Win Daung.

Monywa, Myanmar (Burma)

Monywa sits on the banks of the Chindwin and is mainly a trading point for local produce heading south towards Mandalay. Highlights of the town include Bodhi-taung Pagoda ('One Thousand Bo Trees'), a 91 metre long reclining Buddha, Kyauka Shweguni Pagoda and a lacquerware village. Pho Win Daung, an impressive network of sandstone caves containing, it's claimed, over 400,000 Buddha images is only a short drive from the town and well worth a visit.
