Mandalay Hill

For a panoramic view of the Royal Palace in the midst of the beautiful Mandalay landscape with the hilly ranges in the distance, a climb up the Mandalay Hill is necessary. The hill which goes up to a height of 167.64 meters, bears the “wish granting” pagoda where a huge statue of Buddha pointing to the Royal Palace stands. According to legend, on his visit, Buddha prophesied on this hill that a great city would be found below. Now, along with photographers, you can flock to the hill to capture the sunrises and sunsets over the beautiful city.
