Thank you!
Mandalay is the second-largest city and the last royal capital of Burma. When it was founded in 1857, the royal city was officially named Yadanabon, the Burmese version of "(city) full of gems". Mandalay is Burma's cultural and religious center of Buddhism, having numerous monasteries and more than 700 pagodas. One of the most interesting of the many art forms in Myanmar is the mosaic work, which is often a mixture of small mirrors and stained glass or coloured stones that adorn the temples and pagodas throughout the country.

One of the most interesting of the many art forms in Myanmar is the mosaic work, which is often a mixture of small mirrors and stained glass or coloured stones that adorn the temples and pagodas throughout the country. The artform is mainly decorative and abstract, and only rarely is there any attempt at figurative work. Su Taung Pyai Pagoda on Mandalay Hill

The work is often geometric is form, consisting of repeating patterns, which may be circular, triangular or rectangular in form, and is intricately woven into the walls, pillars and ceilings of the buildings, especially around the image houses; and is also found on the pedestals of Buddha statues and the like. It ranges in colour from the subdued to the pastel, but even very bright and startling work is found. Su Taung Pyai Pagoda on Mandalay Hill
