  • Hinta Gon Paya is located opposite the main entrance of Shwemawdaw. It's a building more old which remains home to a statue of two hamsa (also called birds hinta) located in front of the stupa. These are the two symbolic birds of Bago was founded.

  • Peaceful temple that is frequented by locals. It's nice, but not really anything special. It does however give a good view of local life. Something I can enjoy. The view of Shwemawdaw is not as spectacular as people would have you believe, but it is nice.
  • Potentially some nice views of the Shwemawdaw from here, or you can see some dude dressed as a lady dance (I didn't actually, but saw all the posters for him/her).
  • I like this place’ there are many interesting thing such as buffalo which seem like a sign here as the hintha.
  • View of Shwe Maw Daw Pagoda is quite good from here. It's a simple place. Need to climb some 20 steps to get there.
  • I ended up here by "mistake" in feb 2017 and spent 3 hrs staring at local ladies and men dancing in the temple like crazy under the influence of local brandies. This is a common way to celebrate Buddhism and specific to Myanmar.
