Kyaik Pun Pagoda, Bago

#3 of 11 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.

  • The pagoda differs from the most other pagodas in its kind. It is no stupa, but 4 large Buddha statues, sitting back to back. The pagoda is fascinating, the 4 Buddha-figures are all different, even though they look similar.

  • Why and how this place is popular is beyond me. It's four sitting Buddhas with no other special quality or draw about them. The entire area is surrounded by trash ans currently (March 2018) under some kind of renovation which adds even more junk. Don't bother going "inside" the pagoda complex because you can get the same pictures from the outside. After, walk South about 200 meters to another pagoda that offers something slightly more interesting to look at.
  • 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.
  • It's amazing.
