 The first thing you must do is surround the stupa in a clockwise direction because this stupa is very iconic. On top of the stupa, there is a long, pointed gold chunk. Surrounding the stupa also allows you to follow the tradition of watering the Buddha on the day you are born.

Like the Shwedagon pagoda, Ananda pagoda also has a golden stupa.

 Mingun Temple

 If you intend to visit Mingun, the most famous tourist destination is the Mingun Pagoda. This pagoda is the largest in Myanmar but has not yet been completed. This pagoda was originally made because King Bodawpaya succeeded in getting Buddha's teeth. Happy because no king had succeeded in getting the Buddha's teeth, he decided to make the largest pagoda in Myanmar as a storage place for the tooth. The pagoda was supposed to reach 152 meters, but because predictions were stating that the kingdom would end when the pagoda was completed, the project was stopped.
