Mingong actually faces Mandalay across the river, but because the river needs to detour the bridge, it is far away. You can also choose to take a direct ferry at Mandalay Marina without the hassle of travelling. But there is less scenery and fun along the way. The ancient city of Mingong now only has three attractions to see, Mingong Stupa, Big Bell and White Temple. It is said that Meng Yun, the king of the Gongbang Dynasty, wanted his queen to climb the top of the tower and worship the Bagan stupa in the distance. He built this huge pagoda on the opposite side of Mandalay and planned three floors. Tall 150 meters high, the king personally supervised the construction. If it is completed, it will become the world's largest stupa, but it will be made by people. After the completion of one third, the king will die. The huge project eventually gave up, leaving only one of the world's largest brick buildings, and two huge stone lions. In the back of the earthquake, even Hinter left only the base. From this huge base, you can imagine the magnificentness of the year.
The ancient city of Mingong is located in the upper reaches of the Irrawaddy River in Myanmar. It is about 11 kilometers from Mandalay. It is the farthest from the city in the remains of several ancient cities in Mandalay. It needs to take the waterway and take an hour to get there.
