Bodhi Tataung, Monywa

3.7
#8 of 18 in Things to do in Sagaing Region
Take in a surreal and astonishing view at Bodhi Tataung, a renowned Buddhist region and monastery dominated by a 129 m (424 ft) tall golden standing Buddha. Built in 1995 to show gratitude to U Narãda, who built the original monastery, this is the second largest Buddha statue in the world, containing 31 internal stories, with an elevator allowing passage to the viewing point at the top. You can see many other astounding sights at the monastery, including a grove of more than 9,000 bo trees, a 69 m (225 ft) high golden pagoda, and thousands more depictions of the Buddha across the area. Consider taking the stairs to the top of the gigantic Buddha, where the paintings on each floor evoke the feeling of ascension and enlightenment.

Where to stay in Monywa

Monywa offers a small but reasonable selection of accommodation options, all providing a comfortable night's sleep. The city sees a relatively small number of international visitors, but a handful of lodgings serve all of the city's guests, ranging from budget guesthouses to three-star modern hotels. Look toward the river and central General Aung San Road for most hotels, with some offering bike rental, outdoor swimming pools, and free Wi-Fi. Your most economical choices lie back toward the bus station, although these prove less convenient when you start to plan your Monywa sightseeing.
