  • Basic go guide that will explain a bit the origin. Very well-preserved Temple very different from the of Bagan, for us MraukU temples are best, very different from what you've seen ever. Many Buddhas within it, all very well preserved, you should go to see it, gives equal whatever (distances in Myanmar-transport) gives equal the hours that you're to reach this place of Myanmar, it will leave you speechless.

  • The only place in mrauk u that has entry fee. 5000ks. Nice, but if you have been to the one across the street in the field, its almost the same just better maintained and buddhas are gold. Museum is ok. Be wary of kids asking for money.
  • The name means "Temple of 80000 Buddha images". It also known as "Temple of Victory".
  • Intricate carvings inside.
  • Beautiful
