  • There are many artistic creations in this temple. At night, you can see the over view of Naypyitaw brightening. There is a elevator to reach the pagoda floor at southeast corner.
  • There's WHITE (pinkish) elephants here. Not crowded. Many parking spaces. No one will hassle you here. Outside professional cameras are not allowed. Storing shoe requires a small donation. Longyi required to go in, will be provided if you're not wearing one, need ID as deposit. Inside has marbled carvings of Buddha's story.
  • one of the best places to visit in the city. very peaceful .
  • Happy
