Settled on the east bank of the wild Chindwin River, this bustling exchange town is more popular among travelers and religious explorers for what lies in the encompassing range. Six miles toward the south is the beautiful Thanboddhay Paya – said by trustees to be home to almost 6 million Buddha pictures – and close-by Bodhi Tataung is a slope religious complex beat by a 424-foot standing Buddha picture, one of the tallest on the planet. Over the waterway from Monywa is Hpo Win Daung, a limestone slope into which scores of recesses were cut between the fourteenth and eighteenth hundreds of years and finished with Buddha pictures.

Monywa is a city in Sagaing Division, Myanmar, located 136 km north-west of Mandalay on the eastern bank of the Chindwin River. It is along the Mandalay-Budalin branch railway line but is best reached by bus as the road from Mandalay is in reasonably good shape.

Monywa is a major trade center for agricultural produce from the surrounding Chindwin Twin Taung (or) Twin Hill - It is a hill in Budalin Township about 3 kms east of the river. It is about 200 meters above the surrounding area. It has a deep lake on top of it. This lake is full of Spirulina, which becomes a medical product of Myanmar.

Shwe Guni Pagoda - About 20km east to the town, there is a 33 meters high Buddha image dating from the 14th century.

Kyaukka Village - This village is just beyond Shwe Guni Pagoda. It is the main center for the crafting of lacquerware since the Konbaung Era.
