3rd biggest bell in the world, so they say. Anyway, it is big. You are allowed to hit the bell and climb under it. Good to see when you are wandering around Mingun village.

Nothing exciting about this. It was just a big bell. It wasn't out of my route so I was happy to swing by for a couple of minutes. I didn't bother with a photo.

This bell was planned to be placed in the unfinished stupa. We thought it was the biggest in the world but according to the inscription it’s the second largest. Nothing much to see and do.

This is the largest “functioning” bell in the world. Neat to see and ring it. We got inside it and it’s neat to hear people ring it while you’re in it.
