Temple, Scenic, Mountaineering, Monastery

Mandalay Hill was the reason that the conurbation of Mandalay was founded in the first place. In 1857, King Mindon founded Mandalay to accomplish an ancient Buddhist prophecy that Gautama Buddha had visited Mandalay hill 2400 years before that with his pupil Ananda, and had decreed that on the 2400th anniversary of his death, a great town of Buddhist teaching would be founded at the foot of the hill. King Mindon took it upon himself to found this conurbation, believing that in so doing, he would attain enlightenment. The hilltop Myanmar temple is rather predictable but the view from this attractive mound is quite charming.
