Mya Tha Lyaung Reclining Buddha, Bago

3.4
#2 of 7 in Historic Sites in Bago Region
Religious Site Tourist Spot
See the huge statue of Mya Tha Lyaung Reclining Buddha, which lies in the open with no temple or pagoda surrounding it. According to local legend, every time they wanted to construct a building over the statue, a storm brewed, preventing their efforts. Built in 2001, the statue reaches an incredible 82 m (269 ft) long. Stand next to the divine statue of the huge Buddha for a great photo opportunity, then move a bit further back to capture the whole monument in one shot. Put Mya Tha Lyaung Reclining Buddha and other Bago attractions into our Bago vacation generator, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Not much to see here really. It was a huge reclining Buddha, just as advertised. I have seen a number of these in a number of places, this one was not anything out of the ordinary. Due to recent rains...  more »
  • The Buddha lying free, you can see this a little abandoned. The most curious are the soles of the feet.

  • Buddha lying outdoors is visible from the road and when our tuk tuk we drove by, we were surprised, because I wanted to go next. But later we still brought here and not in vain. Beautiful soul-friendly place. Buddha more lies beneath the roof near here, but this is beautiful and different from its fellow. Particular attention to the heels, they painted interesting inscriptions and drawings.

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.
