Nor should you. Sure it's reconstructed, but better than a ruin, and I found the way they showed the original excavations and burnt remainders of the teak columns strinking and successful. The Kingdom of Pegu or Hanthawaddy was a major Buddhist, Indo-Chinese center of power...More

Actually visited at the end of January 2017. Overall I was disappointed. Didn't look like the pictures advertising it. Needs a lot of work to make it golden again. Don't rely on my pics either, they've been filtered! 10,000 kyat entrance fee also includes other...More

This is a large area with many small houses together. Typical architecture with buildings plated with gold. Should go with a guide.

Nice replica, wish the original was still standing. Amazing teak pillars from the original were salvaged after the fire and placed next to the new pillars. We also viewed an original Teak Dugout canoe!
