Shwenandaw Monastery - Mandalay

Shwenandaw Monastery

Built by King Mindon in the mid-19th century, Shwenandaw Monastery is built with elaborate teak carvings depicting Buddhist legends and myth. The Monastery was originally built within the Royal Palace of the old capital Amarapura. Later, it was moved to Mandalay Palace and became known as Mya Nan San Kyaw. King Thibaw, moved the structure again to its current location at the foot of Mandalay Hill after his father, King Mindon died in the building. He felt that his father’s spirit still lingered in the building. It is the single remaining structure of the original Palace, exhibiting traditional Myanmar architecture.
