Mandalay Travel Guide

Steeped in history and very `Burmese’ in character is the city of Mandalay, whose very name conjures up romantic visions of Asian mystique, of long golden barges floating down the Ayeyarwady and evokes mental images of pagodas and royal princes and princesses.

Mandalay, the last royal capital of Burma is situated 680km north of Yangon and is a lively city sprawling on the banks of the Ayeyarwady. It was once the capital of Myanmar and is the second-largest city in the country. Its multitude of beautiful temples decorated with exquisite woodcarvings and the pagoda-studded Mandalay Hill proclaims its status as the cultural and spiritual nerve centre of Myanmar.

Mandalay is the second largest city after Yangon and is an important centre of art and Buddhism. Mandalay is home to more than 700 Buddhist pagodas.
