Kyaik Pun Pagoda, Bago

3.2
#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.

  • 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.
  • I-is interesting, but facing the four directions.

  • ပွင့်တော်မူပြီးသော လေးဆူသော ဘုရားရှင်တို့အား အရပ်လေးမျက်နှာ မျက်နှာမူပုံဖြစ် ပူဇော်ထားခြင်း ဖြစ်ပါသည်။

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.
