Kyaik Pun Pagoda, Bago
(3.5/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Nice and unique are the 4 faces of Buddha. Don't miss them when you visit Bago. I think it's a must for everyone visiting Bago!

  • This pagoda has a buddha on each side of it four sides. Each represent the last lord buddha and previous three.
  • Bago came sleeping Buddha and pagoda she mode, but wanted to see here the most. The statues of the four back at each direction. Once taken, will incur a charge, so be prepared on.
