Once overgrown with jungle, Shwethalyaung Buddha now lies intricately decorated with mosaics 54 m (180 ft) high-- easily one of the largest reclining Buddha statues in Myanmar. Admire the design, or learn about the history of how the Buddha was built from the ten murals behind the large statue. Look out for numerous vendors selling souvenirs and other trinkets nearby.

  • That's good because it had seen the photo, wearing a dark time before coming here with ANA in-flight magazine happened to be discovered in the jungle, restored on thought. Roof on now is very important to keep. In the size I was surprised.

  • The place one of the 4 spots we visited in Bago with the historical places ticket. The place also have many kiosks selling most of the souvenirs (from woodcraft to longyi) with very good price. 
  • Huge bed in the historic town of Bago Han monks. Sleep is going around the monks trying to circumnavigate around. Soles of the feet are not to be missed. On the back side (back side) were decorated with wonderful religious paintings. I like painting, on the other side is interesting. It was fun because it was also a lot of souvenir shops.

  • This is one of the highlights of a trip to Bago and definitely worth a stop. The story behind it will have you believe it was built a very long time ago... you can make up your own mind about that. It doesn't take too long to see - maximum 30 mins if you take your time. If you're trying to save some money, the foreigner ticket office closes at about 4:30pm so it would be worth coming after that.
  • MoyMoy
  • Peace!
  • Alms, only the (dollar) extort money. Near monks also are conniving cheats zone. Recommend you to disregard the sightseeing, in your own language spoken. After the Southeast Asian people claiming to be Wynn's attention.
