Mya Tha Lyaung Reclining Buddha, Bago

3.5
#1 of 11 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.

  • Is a statue contextualized in an attractive setting. found years ago buried by brushwood and brambles, was restored and then in excellent condition. Worth a quick visit.

  • This is the best sculpture of Buddha, which I saw at this point! Look him in the eye! They both live! The incredible energy of the place, though I am not a Buddhist. Highly recommend for me turned out to be no. 1 in Bago and top attractions across Myanmar.

  • Big Buddha lying outside. A lot of people but this site is to visit during a stay at Bago.
