Situated at the foot of the pagoda-studded Mandalay Hill, the city of Mandalay was founded by King Mindon as his royal capital in 1857 but was destroyed when it was bombed during WWII. Since its redevelopment, it is now home to lively markets, an abundance of monasteries, Indian temples, mosques and gold workshops as well as a bustling, working riverside to stroll along. Mandalay also has a thriving teahouse culture, with teahouses on almost every street corner.
