  • Truly a remarkable place to visit. A pagoda atop a rock which is reflected in the waters of a pond. Actually when we were there a large part of the Lake was dry (it's why I do the ultimate judgement ...) but this was offset by the beauty of the surrounding landscape. To see!

  • A picturesque surrounding. Many monasteries around there. A pagoda on the small rock firmation. Can go to a small platform area in the middle of rock formation. Cannot go to top.  more »

  • I would only say that it was okay, but I was glad we visited, as it is picturesque and has great views of Mt Zwekabin. The actual visit was short. Walk across a foot bridge to the artificial island and remove your shoes. Walk around and up narrow stairways. You cannot go all the way to the top. Picture taking is not encouraged, this is a place of prayer. Silence is encouraged by signs that are ignored. Local tourists frequently stop foreigners to take pictures with them. (If this bothers you, don't visit Myanmar!) Before visiting we went to lunch at the nearby monastery (we were with a large group of our Burmese students) for a very good (free) vegetarian meal.
  • I like this place beautiful nature and very happy they are service free for eat lunch and dinner
  • Nice scenery and setting but the "keep silent" signs are ignored by giggling and excited visitors, running kids, selfie enthusiasts, and anything else that makes us human :)
  • Its a nice temple to check out. New quarters were being constructed. Monks will give blessings small donation appreciated.
  • I like this all so amanzing view
