  • The most impressive temple in Mrauk-U, impressive with its stupa on the façade, with its corridors of stone and its innumerable Buddhas. In a diagonal position East of town: not to be missed.

  • A massive temple with a spiralling vaulted passageway past myriads of small Buddah images, punctuated every couple of meters by larger sculptures. The largest temple in town.  more »
  • Not only the oudside is impressive but also the inside corridor is beautifull. Old monks sitting outside for a gift.  more »
