Myanmar (Burma) without a shortlist of the best places to go is a catastrophe - there are just too many to chose from! However, both the temple and the pagoda constitute the intellectual and historic spine of the land and the Myanmar tribe and are therefore an important and thrilling part of your stay here.

Fully coated in solid golden, the huge 99 metre long stupa is said to contain the Buddha's fur and can be seen from anywhere in the town. Part of his charms are this tranquil seclusion, as well as his nice decorative hti-taw and extraordinary pictures (there are 5) (pictures of what?). October's Pagodasfest is one of the biggest and most popular festivals in Shan State, where 4 of the pictures are taken on the Royal Barge and guided through towns around the lakes.

In February the Feast of the Holy Land is celebrated and many Buddhists from all over the land make pilgrimages.

A speciality of Mahamuni is the Htamane Competition, which takes place on the evening before the full-monday.

The four 30-foot high gold plated Buddha pictures face the four points of the compass and represent the four succesful wisdom of Buddha.
