About Magway

Mya-Tha-Lun Pagoda, Magway, Myanmar

Magway (sometimes spelled Magwe) is the capital city of the Magway region of Burma. This small city’s maze of narrow streets lead visitors to the Mya-Tha-Lun Pagoda, a beautiful, well-kept red-and-gold stupa at the north end of the city. Said to be made of solid gold bricks, the temple features many shrines dedicated to the worship of nats, which are spirits (both saints and elements of nature).
