Mingun in the Morning

On the morning of our ninth day in Burma, we took another slow boat ride up the Irrawaddy. This time, our destination was the huge, unfinished Mingun Pahtodawgyi.

If it had been finished, it would have easily been the largest pagoda in Burma – nearly 500 feet tall! In its ruined state, it’s merely the largest pile of bricks in the world. View in Google Maps.

We climbed up to the top to take in the view of the river and the stunning Mya Thein Tan, which will be featured in my next post!
