  • Small statues in the niches. Next to Shwe Yan Pyay monastery in Nyaungshwe. Good to go. Cold inside and charm.  more »
  • Interesting little pagoda, but doesn't need more than 15mins tour. Good for a quick stop on your way to airport, or bike from town.  more »
  • Beautiful , interesting place. Located on the way to Inlay Lake. the beautiful wooden monastery and inside findings make this a unique place. Wonderful to see so many Buddha statues .  more »

  • My most favourite is the pagoda then the oval windowed temple. A must visit Shwe Yan Pyay Pagoda with red painted wall with international and muticultural mood in classic Shan coloured glasses decoration. An oval-windowed wooden temple is unique, the serenity inside is worth to visit.
  • This temple is different from others and definitely worth a visit. The famous walls with Buddha figurines can be found in the temple on the right.
  • Peaceful. Best time to visit is in the morning.

  • 值得騎腳踏車過來看看,有很多可愛的小和尚在裡面讀書。
