The Shwe In Bin Kyaung is acclaimed as one of the most attractive monasteries in Mandalay. This large and elegant traditional teak building was constructed by a wealthy Chinese jade merchant in 1895 to please his devoted Burmese wife. The carving is very fine in detail, and the scenes on the inside show courtly and daily life. Its tiered roof is covered in exquisite carvings, which also are featured inside the monastery. Shwe In Bin is a living monastery today, housing over 30 monks.
