Kuthodaw Pagoda & the World's Largest Book reviews
One of my favorite Pagodas around Mandalay. I’m drawn by the history behind the Tripiṭaka tablets which are also known to be the one of the world’s largest books containing729 kyauksa gu or stone-inscription caves. This place is picturesque, so make sure you to snap a few photos after appreciating the Burmese culture and learning about their history.
