Mandalay - Amarapura - U-Bein Bridge



U Bein Bridge is a crossing that spans the Taungthaman Lake near Amarapura in Myanmar. The 1.2 km bridge was built around 1850 and is believed to be the oldest and longest teakwood bridge in the world.Construction began when the capital of Ava Kingdom moved to Amarapura, and the bridge is named after the mayor who had it built. It is used as an important passageway for the local people and has also become a tourist attraction and therefore a significant source of income for souvenir sellers.It is particularly busy during July and August when the lake is at its highest.


The bridge was built from wood reclaimed from the former royal palace in Inwa. It features 1,086 pillars that stretch out of the water, some of which have been replaced with concrete. Though the bridge largely remains intact, there are fears that an increasing number of the pillars are becoming dangerously decayed. Some have become entirely detached from their bases and only remain in place because of the lateral bars holding them together. Damage to these supports have been caused by flooding as well as a fish breeding program introduced into the lake which has caused the water to become stagnant. The Ministry of Culture’s Department of Archaeology, National Museum and Library plans to carry out repairs when plans for the work are finalised.

Lago Inlè - La caratteristica principale sono i rematori i quali hanno sviluppato una tecnica assolutamente originale, impiegando anche il piede per spingere la piroga.

Con una superficie estimada de 12.000 hectáreas y 500 km2 (100 km de largo por tan sólo 5 km de ancho), es el segundo lago en extensión y uno de los más altos (está situado a 884 m sobre el nivel del mar) del país, constituyendo además uno de sus principales destinos turísticos . Su profundidad media varía entre los 2,10 m en la estación seca (3,60 m máximo) y los más de 4 metros en la estación de lluvias.

Questo masso nella Birmania del sud è in equilibrio per un pelo.

Anzi, per un capello!!

Si narra infatti che alla base si trovi un capello del Budda. La leggenda nacque probabilmente quando i primi uomini videro la gigantesca roccia, alta 20 metri, sospesa nel vuoto e pensarono che a tenerla in equilibrio dovesse essere qualcosa di miracoloso. Per questo circa 2000 anni fa vi edificarono sopra una pagoda (la Kyaiktiyo).

Ogni anno buddisti di ogni parte si radunano qui a migliaia. E prima di pregare attaccano sottili foglie d'oro puro alla roccia, chiamata per questo Golden Rock (o roccia d'oro).


Un posto fantastico, da brivido.

According to tradition, Taphussa and Bhallika — two merchant brothers from the north of Singuttara Hill what is currently Yangon met the Lord Gautama Buddha during his lifetime and received eight of the Buddha's hairs. The brothers returned to Burma and, with the help of the local ruler, King Okkalapa, found Singuttara Hill, where relics of other Buddhas preceding Gautama Buddha had been enshrined.[citation needed] When the king opened the golden casket in which the brothers had carried the hairs, incredible things happened

I needed to build a cocoon of blankets and pillows to remove all the glare from the plane lights.
