Mya Tha Lyaung Reclining Buddha, Bago

3.5
#1 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. Make Mya Tha Lyaung Reclining Buddha part of your personalized Bago itinerary using our Bago day trip planner.

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.
