Oasis in Mandalay - Bagaya Monastery

Located in the ancient city of Inwa, the Bagaya Kyaung Monastery is constructed entirely of teak wood and is a representation of the Wayzayanta Palace, which is the highest level of heaven in Buddhism. Built in 1838 A.D., the entire monastery is decorated with intricate carvings, floral arabesques, curved figurines and the reliefs of birds and animals. Today, it provides housing and schooling for local children, and is an impressive example of the ancient arts that the people of Burma should be proud of.
