Overview

Drive an hour outside of downtown Mandalay, crossing the Ayeyerwady river, to reach Sagaing Hill and the serene Sagaing Nunnery complex. Meet the Abbess of the nunnery, the head of the Nuns to chat about the daily life of the Nuns, the role of Nuns in Myanmar and how they study the Buddhist literature. The Thilashin, novice nuns, at the nunnery school here are some of the most highly educated in the world.

Take a stroll through the grounds and admire the beautiful and unique lacquerware Buddha, before taking part in a 30 minute meditation practice guided by the Nuns. At 10:45 it is time for lunch, which involves the whole complex. Watch as 100s of shoes are placed in neat lines outside the communal dining area, where each day everyone comes together to dine on a delicious vegetarian meal. The ingredients are all donated by the local community and the food is cooked by the Nuns themselves.
