One of the country's major Buddhist pilgrimage sites, Maha Myat Muni Pagoda- Mahamuni Buddha Temple boasts a grand, golden image of Mahamuni Buddha. Tradition maintains that this realization of the Buddha is one of only five that were created during his lifetime, when according to legend, the Buddha visited the then capital of Arakan in 554 BC. The then king and his court were so moved by the Buddha's teachings that they asked him to leave an image of himself for the people to worship. Nowadays, the illustrious temple is lavishly adorned with golden spires and intricate flourishes. Look out for the Mahamuni museum on the temple grounds, where you'll have the opportunity to learn about the life of the Buddha.
