Mandalay Division

Mandalay was founded by Myanmar’s second last monarch King Mindon, who was the most religious of his dynasty. He earned merit from many pagodas and hundreds of monasteries that he built in Mandalay and its environs. Notable sites are the Maha Muni, Kuthodaw and Kyauk Taw Gyi Pagodas as well as those of Mandalay Hill.
