See uncountable white-and-gold Stupas shimmer on waves of small green hills and the whole scene is enthralling. The views from the Sagaing hill is stunning and also amazing. To visit ”Thakyadithar” Nunnery, we should arrive about 10:30 and see the nuns queuing for lunch around 11:00 am in complete silence, looking straight ahead and clutching their bowls. A silverware workshops are there in Ywa-Hung village in Sagaing. Various kinds of silverware such as jewelry, bowls, trays, boxes and Buddha images are made.
