Shwe Oo Min Paya, Kalaw

(120+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
See rows of golden Buddha statues at Shwe Oo Min Paya, a natural limestone cave so well-proportioned that it look as though it was carefully engineered. Walk along the tunnels to see various Buddha images and statues in the cave, which has special religious significance. Some locals meditate inside the cave, and you can join them if you feel in the mood. Take the stairs to the top of the area, where you can enjoy views of more shrines in the region. Work out when and for how long to visit Shwe Oo Min Paya and other Kalaw attractions using our handy Kalaw trip builder.
