This is a special place, but I had to chose between Mandalay Hill and the Sanda Muni Paya. It is special but I looked from the outside and that was okay to me.

Just stunning walking around the biggest book in the world and every page has its own Stupa/temple. Another great thing to see in Mandalay.

Very close and very similar to the most famous Kuthodaw Pagoda - world's largest book, this temple looks like its copy. If you've explored the bigger one before, you wont need much time here but to make some terrific pics.
