Shwe Oo Min Paya, Kalaw

4.1
#6 of 14 in Things to do in Kalaw
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.

    Not too large cave with hundreds of Buddhas of all shapes and sizes. Very special to see that people in this way pay tribute to Buddha. You walk a fixed route through the cave, where the entrance is not equal to the exit. In the rainy season the cave sometimes contain a layer of water thus the Guide. It was extremely quiet.

    Good array of masses of Buddhas placed in underground cave complex. Interesting to see. Some Buddhas are very old.  more »
