This famous Mandalay white temple took the internet by storm when people from around the world started to visit it and post photos on Instagram. With its incredible architecture, it’s no wander why this round shaped temple became so famous. In my opinion, after the Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon, this is the second most beautiful temple in Myanmar. Of course, the temples in Bagan are incredible too, especially Ananda Temple but the Hsinbyume Pagoda is special. Once you will get in front of this temple, it will feel like stepping into another world. Before getting into more details about his beautiful white temple in Mingun, Mandalay.
The white pagoda was built in 1816 by Prince Bagyidaw. The structure was dedicated to his first wife, Princess Hsinbyume, which literally translates to White Elephant Princess, who died during child birth.
