Shwe Oo Min Paya, Kalaw

4.0
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. Put Shwe Oo Min Paya into our Kalaw trip itinerary website and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • The pagoda name mean pagoda in the cave. It have total 3 caves namely upper cave, middle cave and lower cave. Lower cave is the main cave with lighting, people, donations and etc. Upper cave is very long, small, dark, low ceiling and narrow tunnel with lot of fork. Good for exploration but be careful to get lost. According to the tour guide the cave can lead all the way to Bagan, but haven't try so far yet.
  • It is one of the historical place of golden Myanmar where is deep and steep natural cave. Everybody should go like excursion or investigation to there. MYANMAR🇲🇲🇲🇲🇲🇲🇲🇲🇲🇲
