Mya Tha Lyaung Reclining Buddha, Bago

3.4
#2 of 7 in Historic Sites in Bago Region
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.

    This Buddha is the most beautiful Buddha we saw on our trip. It was there very quiet and little or no tourist spot what was once beautiful. Your eyes and your feet are worth seeing and stand out very! You can only recommend this place and should definitely hit him.

    The Buddha lying free, you can see this a little abandoned. The most curious are the soles of the feet.

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.
