Monywa

 

Thanbodde Pagoda Festival

Monywa, the commercial center of the Chindwin Valley, is about 136 km northwest of Mandalay. A very unusual Buddhist temple complex, Thanboddhe, is situated about 20 kilometers from the town.

The pagoda has a unique shape. Receding terraces top the square temple, with a myriad of small stupas surrounding the central golden chedi. The pagoda festival is held around the full moon day of Tazaungmone (November).
