Add a Point to the Map

Shwenandaw is a monastery made entire out of teak wood with beautiful intricate carvings. It was originally part of the royal palace built by King Mingdon and moved to its current location by his son, King Thibaw in the late 19th century. It is the only major building from the original wooden royal palace to have survived the bombing during World War II, and thus is the only authentic part of the royal palace which can still be seen today.

Type of place: Monument/Building
Location: Mandalay, Burma/Myanmar
