  • It gets some bad press because it was admittedly built as a replica of the Shwedagon (which CAN'T be replicated), but because it isn't surrounded by many, tiny stupas, you can really appreciate the size of it. Other "pluses" are that the area is never crowded, and you can go inside to Pagoda and get a different viewpoint of its size.
  • One of the best pagoda in the world! Amazing view from above, and the pagoda is just amazing!! Best view is in the morning...
  • Very good view. Very Fresh air. You will feel mind and body fresh there with light wind
  • This Pagoda is just stunning. Only a meter smaller than the famous Shwedagon pagoda in Yangon, but almost no tourists, just locals. A must see if you come to the capital!
  • Pretty cool pagota. Inside accessible. Free entrance. Nice views from the structure base. Merely anybody there during my visit which is nice.
