Myanmar - Shwenandaw Monastery, Mandalay

Since its erection in the 19th century, the teak-wooden structure of Mandalay’s Shwenandaw Monastery has not lost its charm and splendor at the time, King Mindon used it as his living quarters.
It has also been inscribed in the history books as the Golden Palace Monastery; the inner and outer wood works used to be covered in golden leaves and used to be part of the nearby Royal Palace.
The gilded look may be lost but visiting the intricate wood carvings outside are a golden moment of awesomeness.
