Here is a video we made at Atumashi Kyuang Temple Mandalay Myanmar

Atumashi Kyuang Temple Mandalay Myanmar | The Incomparable Monastery

Right behind the gorgeous teak wooden Monastery Shwe Nan Daw Kyuang, you will find the somewhat hidden temple Atumashi Kyuang. Entrance to this temple is included in the ticket for Shwe Nan Daw Kyuang, and you should definitely give this place a visit, before moving on.

When we visited there was no one there! Everyone seemed to be visiting the wooden monastery, and then passing this site by. The interior was hard to explain, but vast and cavernous. The roof was also lined with wooden carvings. Apparently the original structure was covered in carving much like the teak monastery, and contained a 30 foot tall Buddha, that was removed when the temple burnt down in 1890.

The entrance for this temple is included in the Mandalay city pass ($10). Atumashi Kyaung or the Incomparable Monastery was built in 1857. The original structure was a magnificent wooden construction, like the teak monastery, and is set atop a high platform with a ceremonial staircase. At the time, this temple was considered one of the most magnificent structures in South East Asia. Do not miss this in Mandalay Myanmar!
