Starting with Sagaing, this former royal city is known as the centre of Buddhism in Myanmar. The nuns at ThaKyaDiThar Nunnery are welcoming and there is a fondness to chat as you admire the serene atmosphere of this large monastery. Travel by horse cart down tree line paths to see remnants of the old palace wall and Bagaya Kyaung monastery constructed from teak. Go behind the scenes of the gem and jade trade and watch as stones are cut, polished and sold over cups of sweet milky tea. It is serious business so be prepared to haggle for a bargain! Then see the Mahamuni Buddha, one of the most venerated in all of Myanmar. It was commissioned by King Sanda Thuriya to commemorate the visit to Arakan by Buddha in 554BC. After the image was cast it is said that Buddha breathed upon it and his true likeness was revealed. Daily rituals of washing and applying gold leaf are only done by men as women are forbidden to touch the image.
Continue to Shwenandaw monastery that has swooping roof details and highly decorative lintels carved from teak. Late evening meditation session at selected Buddhist monastery.
