Kakku Pagodas, Kyaing Tong

(4.6/5 based on 150+ 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 Taunggyi, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Taunggyi trip generator, to make sure you see all that Taunggyi has to offer, including Kakku Pagodas.

  • I travelled to Kakku from Taunggyi. The group of pagodas looks beautiful together at a distance and different stupas have different designs on it. It's a pity that they are being restored badly as it'...  more »
