Mandalay, the country's second largest city, is the spiritual and cultural heart of Myanmar. More than half of all Buddhist monks in Myammar reside in the Mandalay area. The ancient Rakhaing Buddha image of Mahamuni Paya is possibly the most revered in the country. Nearby workshops produce the buddha images found everywhere in the country, as well as the golden leaves used to cover sacred places. High above Mandalay Fort, Mandalay Hill offers sweeping views of the city and its temples, among them the nearby Kuthodaw Paya, which contains the world's biggest book.
