Day 3: FOUR PALACES OF TOOTH RELICS

Today we begin after breakfast with discovering one of Bagan’s most famous legends by following the tracks of King Anawrahta and his precious white elephant. The tale has it that the King was given a replica of Lord Buddha’s tooth which he then placed on a sacred elephant’s back before setting him free. The elephant stopped at four places around Bagan and later the King built Stupas at each of these locations. Thus the local Burmese believe that by visiting all four of these sacred places in one day your wish will be fulfilled. Afterward back to the hotel for freshen up. Late afternoon, excursion to lacquerware factory and take this chance to grab this fascinating arts of lacquerware as souvenir. Enjoy an unforgettable sunset of the beautiful pagoda before heading back to hotel for dinner.
