The ancient city of Inwa, on the outskirts of Mandalay, is like an island, and the ruins of scattered ruins are hidden on this island. As the tour guide said, if Mandalay does not go to Ubuntu Bridge to watch the sunset, then you must lack the romantic factor; if you go to Mandalay and don't go to Invar, you must not understand the human history of Myanmar. The ancient city of Inwa was the capital of Myanmar for nearly four centuries and was the ancient capital of the famous Inwa Dynasty.
Yesterday was the sixth day of the trip to Myanmar. In the morning, mom and dad packed up their luggage and prepared to return.
Under the rain of Mandalay, it was very sudden, but it was very short. It was the prayer ceremony in Ubunt Bridge a few days ago. Is it still reluctant to go mom and dad?
Have had a hearty lunch at noon, Mom and Dad went to the last stop of the trip - Inwa Ancient City.
The ancient city of Inwa, separated from other areas by the Irrawaddy River and the canal, was completely destroyed by a major earthquake in March 1839. So far, the simple Awa people lived here, away from the excitement and hustle and bustle of the capital.
Embark on the ancient city of Ava and feel the rough atmosphere of the primitive society in the smell of horse manure.
This simple wooden carriage is everywhere, but it is the best means of transportation to visit the ancient city of Ava. Sitting in the carriage, swaying and listening to the crisp hooves, a big mother said happily, as if returning to childhood.
At the end of the ancient city there is an ancient temple, which is said to be the oldest building in Inwa. The whole temple is made of teak and is very strong. Unlike many temples in other parts of Myanmar, this temple is particularly quaint and natural. There is a school in the temple where local children study, and the only TV set is black and white.
The ancient city of Awa is full of banana trees, which is the main source of daily income for locals, but visitors can also pick them at will.
The Mahaon Temple in Mandalay, also known as the Yellow Temple, is the most beautiful building in the Inwa site. Despite the wind and rain, you can still see the gorgeous golden and majestic spirit.
Come, take a group photo together.
The pagoda group, here is the ruins of a temple, destroyed by the 1839 earthquake. The mottled Buddha statue sits between the ancient big banyan tree and the broken wall. There is an indescribable feeling of tranquility.
The ruins of the palace of Inwa, now only the 27-meter-high watchtower. Built in 1821, the tower is the representative of Burma's early 19th century architectural style. The tower is now heavily tilted and I don't know how long it will last in the long river.
After visiting the ancient city of Inwa, the parents and dads rushed to the airport.
Goodbye, Myanmar! Goodbye, Mandalay's simple and lovely people!
Mom and Dad are coming back safely.
