Bodhi Tataung, Monywa

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.

  • This site brings together a standing of more than 130 m high Buddha, Buddha lying 98 Mr. in the 2 cases of countries have made Buddhas of the same nature a little bigger and these achievements are the 2 nd largest in the world. This is the reason why a sitting Buddha is under construction, it should be the largest in the world. We climbed some floors, walk, standing Buddha because the elevator is not yet in service. Each floor different paintings represent scenes from the life of Buddha. Around the plots are planted 3,000 Banyan trees, under each of the trees there is a statue of Buddha. The goal is to have 10,000 Buddhas penny 10,000 trees. We went there early February and there were few foreign tourists.

  • While the sight itself is interesting (and hard to access), its the visitors here that are so fascinating- we met a group of Hill Tribe women on pilgrimage... we enjoyed seeing their regional costumes...  more »
  • Still a site the news given the staggering dimensions of the 2 most recent Bouddha.Le is the standing Buddha (2nd after the Lushan in China) inaugurated in 2008.the reclining Buddha measures 98 m long and 19 m high... A new building on the right is underway for a sitting Buddha... We liked better at the exit of the village 1000 Buddha statues protected by 1000 young Banyan...
