Kyaik Pun Pagoda, Bago

(160+ reviews on the web)
Monument
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. Plan your visit to Kyaik Pun Pagoda and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Bago tour planner.

  • Pretty much the same on all sides except adorned slightly differently on each side. Worth a trip only if you are in the area already.  more »

  • 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.
  • This pagoda has a buddha on each side of it four sides. Each represent the last lord buddha and previous three.
