One Day in Mandalay:A Photoblog

Mandalay is home to several of Myanmar’s Architectural Treasures. The airport arrival gives a clear hint of what awaits at the city centre.

Kuthodaw Pagoda – A Unesco World Heritage site known for its intricate architecture and hundreds of brilliant white pagodas.

Myanmar’s traditional architecture is primarily used for worship, pilgrimage, storage of Buddhist relics and tourism. Buddhism plays a strong influence in architectural character.
