  • The visit of the caves in Pindaya's "to do", if you stay 4 or 5 days to the Inle Lake... Especially during the Festival of Pindaya. It's a bit tacky, but it's friendly... But if you have a lot of time to the Inle Lake, then it may arbitrate with other visits.

  • The limestone cave houses more than eight thousands Buddha statues should get into the Guinness Book of record as the cave with the most Buddha statues. Solemn, Enchanting, Amazing, ..... this Buddhis...  more »
  • An absolutely amazing site, first hospitality with this prince Kummabhaya getting ready to slay a giant spider cartoon something kitsch but it seems very serious for the Burmese. Then, choice, stairs or elevator... lift is good, we won't renew the Odyssey of the mount Popa! Finally the cave, stupor! of the Buddhas of all sizes, from all materials, scattered throughout several rooms with small narrow mazes where we slip on my way the tummy so space is limited. A strange light which made twinkle statues almost giving them a semblance of life. The names of donors from around the world and... a feeling of gentle tranquility and freshness maintained by a contribution limited to visitors at the beginning of February. I don't know what there is in this cave, but I felt good.

  • It's a cave temple with a lot of Buddha statues inside it. It's not the longest cave like this in Myanmar, but very glorious one. View at the top is breathtaking. a lot of crowd is to be expected during holidays. Elevator facility is available to climb up to starting point of the cave in the hills. Nice place to visit in Myanmar
  • A stunning and amazing cave with almost 10,000 golden Buddha images inside the maze-like cave, there is a place for people to pay respect and meditation. The cave entrance located quite high, you have to go there either by stair or elevator. The view from top also great.
  • Loved the caves! Amazing Buddhas inside from different eras. So glad I saw it and got some incredible photos!
  • Nice view. Smokeless area for good environment. And there is smoking area.
  • Nice place to visit. Many buddha ststutes. Very nice scenery.
