World's Largest Book, Mandalay

At Kuthodaw Pagoda you can get a glimpse of the World's Biggest Book. Not sure if it is Guinness or not but this is literally the world's biggest book. In size that is. On the grounds of the pagoda are 729 white stupa-like structures called kyauksas. Each kyauksa contains a marble slab about a meter tall inscribed with the text from a page from the Tipitaka - the Pali Canon of Theravada Buddhism. Wow, just incredible! Next on our list of things to see - The Biggest Ball of Twine in Minnesota.
