Your were not allowed to clomb it, there was barely no inside (but still a entrance fee), and souvenir-sellers all over the place.
You could call this a tourist-trap.

This is a massive construction that has been ravaged by earthquakes over the years.
The damage to it seems to enhance the appearance. Although there were signs telling people not to climb the stairs to the top, many persons did so.
We just walked around the base... still very worthwhile!

you can take to boat to here, or hire taxi to here , it's about one and a half hour from Mandalay to Mingun , don't forget to see the most biggest bell in the world, it's just 5 minutes walk from Mingun Pagoda and White temple where Myanmar people called it "Tajmahal" because it's about love cemetery as same as Tajmahal in India

We enjoyed the excursion in Minguin to see the second largest bell and the temple. It is getting a bit touristy, but what do you expect when you have such lovely places in your country? It was very hot in April, but we still enjoyed our visits.

The trip to Mingun was a nice half day out from Mandalay but there isnt much left of the Minguin temple. That said, its interesting to see and I'm sure it would have been awesome if finished or if the giant lions at the gate were still intact. A wander around the outside will suffice.
