Mingun Tour

Take a half-day tour to see the town of Mingun’s temples. You’ll travel an hour upstream the Ayeyarwaddy River to see the Mingun Pagoda and the Myatheindan Pagoda. As you travel along the river, you’ll also see scenes from rural life in Myanmar, including women washing laundry among buffalo on the riverbank.

The Mingun Pagoda is the great unfinished pagoda begun by King Bodawpaya in 1790. Historians believe that the Mingun pagoda may have remained unfinished because of a prophecy that the king would die once the pagoda was finished. It’s known for its enormous bell, which is one of the largest in the world. Myatheindan Pagoda is an all-white temple meant to depict the legendary Mount Meru.
