Underground cave of Hpo Win Daung

Statue of Buddha in one underground cave of Hpo Win Daung complex near the city of Monywa.
The underground cave shelter Buddha images, Buddhist wall paintings dating from the 14th, 15th
and 18th century. The underground cave could shelter more than 400 000 images.
These underground cave are very little visited and we really recommend you this
excursion. You can make the journey since Mandalay in a day (6 hours by car go and back)
or you may sleep in Monywa .
