Salay

Salay is another culture heritage spot about an hour away from Bagan. The town is home to Yoke Sone Kyaung monastery which is an artwork itself because of its elaborate wood carvings throughout the building. It is also the birthplace of the reputable writer, U Pone Nya, from the time of the Burmese monarchs and hence, the museum dedicated to his work is also frequented by visitors.
