  • Myanmar military capital Naypyidaw and Yangon's Golden pagodas built when transferring to Sheffield as Dagon Pagoda and almost the same shape. Both the Interior and the exterior and ornate gold had a comment on the inside wall of the Buddha, according to this subsection.

  • Very nice pagoda, with frescoes on the life of Buddha all around. We have even seen workers finishing the last Burmese, the grinder and self-contained. Impressive!

  • This is definitely worth an hour in you are visiting Nay Pyi Daw. It is lovely and has a beautiful feel to it. You must cover shoulders and knees.

  • 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.
