  • Small temple, however, has a little secret, if you go to the pagoda you can see everywhere small niches in which Buddhas are available. You can buy them here and its name

  • We were very disappointed by this temple especially when you go there after reading the great reviews on internet. The temple has no interest at all, is very dirty and it is absolutely not worth going there. But we went there by bicycles and the landscapes along the roads are really really beautiful. Worse temple in all Asia ever!
  • 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.
