Shwe Yan Pyay Monastery, Nyaung Shwe

(200+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
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. For Shwe Yan Pyay Monastery and beyond, use our Nyaung Shwe vacation planner to get the most from your Nyaung Shwe vacation.

  • 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。
