A picturesque town on the Chindwin River, Monywa is known a typical unspoiled Myanmar town and it is only a three hours' drive from Mandalay. The name Monywa comes from Mon meaning "cake or snack food" and Ywa means village. A legend says that in the old days a Myanmar king fell in love with a seller of cakes from this town and made her his queen. The original name some say is Mon-Thema-Ywa or "Village of the woman cake seller" On the way to Monywa and before you reach the town there is unusual Buddhist temple complex on 37 acres of land called Mohnyin Thanboddhay. It is similar in architectural design to the Borobudur, a famous ancient pagoda in Indonesia.
