Burma Holidays - Sagaing Hill near Mandalay

Sagaing, on the western banks of the Irrawaddy (Ayeyarwady) River, is a peaceful town where Buddhists go to relax.  It is dotted with more than 500 stupas, as well as many monasteries and nunneries.  It was capital of an independent Shan Kingdom from 1315 to 1364 and again, briefly, from 1760 to 1764.  Visit the Kaungmudaw, best known of Sagaing's pagodas, with its white breast-like dome (below right), and then take a look at a silver workshop, followed by a climb to the top of the Sagaing hills for a panoramic view.
