Kyaik Pun Pagoda, Bago

3.4
#3 of 10 in Things to do in Bago
Discover the four sitting Buddhas at Kyaik Pun Pagoda, who sit 27 m (90 ft) tall facing different directions. Although seemingly the same, the four Buddhas have different facial expressions, decorated nails, and other small details to look out for. The legend says that the four statues were connected with four Mon sisters, who made a vow to never get married. If any broke the vow, the pagoda would collapse. An earthquake in 1930 did destroy one statue, but reconstruction brought the pagoda back to its previous glory.

  • A four-faced pagoda, much more interesting and colourful than some of the more well-known local sites. Make sure you circumambulate the site from the outside as there are things you will not see from ...  more »

  • Should visit in Bago. This is the differene type of Pagoda with composed of 4 Budda. Travel in Bago has cost about 10000 kyat for tge whole place in Bago.
  • You pay 10.000 Kyats because you have to pay entry for four pagodas in Bago - the ticket you buy is for all of them and not only for this one.
  • Not so well maintained Pagoda with 4 buddhas. Since they charge foreigners 10000 MMK to roam around and visit places in Bago, they should maintain this place.
  • Ancients Buddha image
  • One of the famous sights in Bago, but it's not really worth the trip. If you go with a tuktuk, tell the driver to wait for you, because there isn't normally other way back to town.

Where to stay in Bago

Most of the accommodations in Bago line the busy main road, especially the budget-friendly options, so try to get a room in the back of these establishments to avoid noise from the ever-present traffic. If cost is not an issue, you can stay farther away from the road, in one of the more upmarket hotels.
