Ancient Kingdom of Sagaing

Ancient Kingdom of Sagaing

Situated just across the Ayeyarwaddy (Irrawaddy) River from Mandalay, Sagaing boasts of over 500 pagodas scattered throughout the forested hills of the riverside.

The hamlet continues to be one of Myanmar’s most important religious centres, as demonstrated by over 6,000 monks and nuns who dwell in the hundreds of monasteries hidden among the wooded hills.

The town offers fantastic views over the riverside, opportunities to learn about the skilled silversmith trade passed along for generations, visits to various craftsmen villages, and insight into the Buddhist monastic life that so shapes the gentle disposition of the country.
