Pahtodawgyi Pagoda, Mandalay, Myanmar (Burma)

By on March 21, 2017 in Myanmar/Burma

The next stop on my “Mandalay taxi tour” was the Pahtodawgyi Pagoda, Mandalay, Myanmar (Burma).

Again, the Pagoda was another fine example of a pagoda in Myanmar (Burma). I wonder just how many pagodas there are in Myanmar?

The Pahtodawgyi Pagoda is a white pagoda. That is, the main pagoda is a brilliant white, and not covered in gold leaf. The stonework and carving around pagoda are, yet again, stunning.

As with all temples and pagodas that you visit in Myanmar (Burma) shoes cannot be worn (some temples and pagodas will also ask that you remove your socks) and there is also a strict dress code for tops (see photo below), and legs must be covered.
