I noticed that the gates on some of the shrines at Kuthodaw (See Kuthodaw) were open and that rugs were laid out on the floor. Apparently, you can climb inside and sit with the stone tablet of a Tripitaka page and reflect on its meaning. [NOTE: This is probably a more common practice during the rainy season when the temperatures in Mandalay drop a bit. Was oppresively hot the day I visited, and I bet it was like an oven inside these shrines].
