Shwe Yan Pyay Monastery, Nyaung Shwe
(4.2/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Now a teaching place for disadvantaged male youth, Shwe Yan Pyay Monastery attracts visitors to observe monks and their daily routines. Young boys come to the red-hued teak structure to learn and become monks. Not overly decorated, the building's main features of interest are its oval windows--cut into the wooden walls--and some smaller carvings. Watch as the boys go about their daily routines, or join a prayer. Be advised that taking photos of the boys, or anyone inside, is prohibited.

  • You see, and you can enter a monastery where they are active, eat, study and sleep there, the central part is a wooden construction where to perform the tasks and worships Buddha ion. It's small but if you go to Inle Lake worth. Not fotografieis to children, if we respect privacy perhaps can access more time. It is very close to Nyaung shew, bike maybe a kilometer. Input is not paid

  • The inside of this monastery is interesting with all the carved wood. Be sure to look up at the ceiling for intricate woodwork. There are vendors who will bother you trying to sell their wares 
  • Beautiful monastery inhabited by monks of all ages, wooden construction a few kilometres only from l Pier to Lake inle free tour
