Thank you!
Mandalay is the second-largest city and the last royal capital of Burma. When it was founded in 1857, the royal city was officially named Yadanabon, the Burmese version of "(city) full of gems". Mandalay is Burma's cultural and religious center of Buddhism, having numerous monasteries and more than 700 pagodas. One of the most interesting of the many art forms in Myanmar is the mosaic work, which is often a mixture of small mirrors and stained glass or coloured stones that adorn the temples and pagodas throughout the country.
