Kakku Pagodas, Kyaing Tong
(4.7/5 based on 130 reviews on the web)
A little off the beaten track, 600-year-old Kakku Pagodas attract visitors with the sheer number of pagodas in such a small space. Built side-by-side, the religious structures provide an interesting sighting and heritage learning experience, and surround one main, bigger pagoda. Each structure has its own ornaments and statues, and twinkling chimes decorate the air. Try to organise a good guide to teach you about the history and the Pa-O people who live in the area. Before you head to Kyaing Tong, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Kyaing Tong trip generator, to make sure you see all that Kyaing Tong has to offer, including Kakku Pagodas.

  • Interesting collection of pagodas just a bit of a drive from Nyaung Shwe. If you have the time it's worth hiring a driver to go visit. 
  • Remarkable concentration of pagodas, some dating back to the 16th century. Careful observation will allow you to detect many variations in styles and decors. Remains with the original umbrella Stone Pagoda qulelques (at the back). Bodies of water at the front allow pretty effects of reflection. The trees at the front of the site are remarkable. A simple but excellent restaurant is beyond the trees.

  • Super scenery. Nice to walk around immerse in the ancient pagoda. However, quite a few are toppling.

  • We must find the life to get there, shared Taxi or so already is in the middle of nowhere, but a very cool look, place even not being the most famous of Myanmar.
