Nice to visit this on a half day trip from Mandalay. Take a boat ride and visit the two famous temples in Mingun and this big bell. Fun to get down on your knees and then crawl under the bell. Big enough to stand inside...More

The world's largest bell. Many people crawled under the bell to be inside when it was rung. Not as loud as you would expect. It's a interesting thing to see. Of course the locals do their very best to sell you their goods as you...More

Visited during our 3 night stay in Mandalay, wow what a size, cannot imagine quiet how they cast this a couple of hundred years ago & it remains intact, sadly very busy site, hard to get a decent photo, however patience does pay off

This bell should be on the Pahtodawygi Pagoda, but an earthquake thought differently. Now it is visitable and touchable. You can stand inside and listen and feel the vibrations, which is pretty cool. Ans this bell is old.

Located a short walk from the Mingun Pagoda is a pavilion housing the bell. It is a huge un-cracked 200 hundred year old cast bell. One does not see (or ring) a 90 Ton bronze bell often. Really a spectacular feat of casting and installation...More

Nothing special about this. It is just a big huge bell housed in a small small pavilion. You may want to take a quick look as you walk from the Mingun Pagoda to Hsinbyume Pagoda.

This is the 2nd largest bell in the world and should originally used for the unfinished pagoda. It is really a huge bell with its 90 tons and quite impressive. It is included in the sightseeing of the Mingun Village.

This is 2 minute walk from the Mingun pagoda. It is just a bog bell not so impressive and one can skip if there is limited time.

the big bell locates inside pavillion with tiers of carved wooded roof .it's big but the place makes the bell look grandeur as its size . it's hot and I suggest to bring a lot of water with you.
