Shwe Oo Min Paya, Kalaw
(4.2/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Yes, it's easy to be dazzled by the thousands of images as you wander around and through this natural cave. The images are made from a range of materials including teak, marble and lacquer and in all ...  more »
  • The cave is not that big compared to other cave pagodas in Myanmar. Even in Kalaw, there's a cave pagoda which is a much better place to visit called "Myin Ma Hti" cave. 
  • The site is essential if you're going to kalaw... It takes little to visit although cieraa soon... and it is very nice... us to get from Kalaw went through a military camp also interesting although not we stopped to take pictures if it was banned...
