Kyaikthanlan Paya

Mawlamyine, Myanmar (Burma)

An Evocative Sunset Spot

Documented by Rudyard Kipling during his brief, but impactful, visit to Myanmar, the tallest and most visible stupa in Mawlamyine remains one of the city's most enchanting spots. It is a particularly fine place to watch the sun-setting over the Salween River. Just to the north is Mahamuni Paya, an equally alluring temple complex.
