    Leaning Watchtower

    This is known as the "leaning tower of Inwa" by virtue of the structural shift brought about by the 1838 earthquake. The upper part of the 27metre tower was completely shattered by the earthquake, and the rest sits on a very precarious looking angle!

    Regardless of the tilt - you can still walk to the top of the tower, with quite good views to be enjoyed.

    Leaning Tower of Inwa - Namyin

    Namyin

    This is the remains of a Palace that was built by King Bagyidaw. It is a nice place to get views of the surrounding area as it rises 27 meters above the rice fields.
    This and many other buildings in the area were badly damaged in the Massive 1838 Earthquake!

    Ava Bridge

    Ava Bridge

    This is a huge bridge! It has 16 spans and was the only bridge in the whole country that crossed the Ayerwaddy until 1998!!!! Amazing that for so many years there was only one bridge across this very long river. Now I believe there are 2 other bridges across the Ayerwaddy at other locations. There are toll booths at both ends of the bridge collecting a very small fare per vehicle.
    The bridge is interesting as it has 3 lanes on it. 2 for vehicles and one for trains.

    Locals waiting at the Jetty

    Jetty

    The Ferry Boat seemed to have about 6-8 passengers for each crossing. I'm not sure if there are any bridges in the area but I doubt it. As the big Ava bridge is the only bridge that I ever saw. And that one wouldn't do these villagers any good as it was a few miles away.

    Farmers

    There were local Farmers along my ride. For me they added to the beauty of the area. Just knowing that the land was being worked in time honored traditions was amazing.
