Kyaik Pun Pagoda, Bago

(3.6/5 based on 150+ 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.

  • Big 4-each with varying layout, beautiful evening, shooting is one of the must-see spots of Bago.

  • located at the border of town on a side street from the main road, this is a little different than just another temple  more »
  • 相較其他勃固的景點,這個佛寺相對來說比較小型,但絕對值得一訪。四座佛像組合成面向四方的巨大雕像,每座佛像的造型、臉型、樣貌各異,讓人印象深刻。  more »

  • 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.
