An old Buddhist monastery in Mandalay is still accommodating monks, although three other impressive religious buildings in the ancient capital were damaged by fire during the second world war. The wooden monastery, named Shwe Inpin Monastery and decorated with floral designs, was constructed in 1257 M.E, and donated to the Venerable Sayadaw U Javana in 1261 M.E.
Donors U Sak Shwin and Daw Bwa created the building with four large halls, and it is now one of the main tourist attractions in the country’s second-largest city.—Min Htet Aung (Mandalay sub-printing House)
