  • This is one of few tall hills close to Bagan so one of the few places you can see panorama of all of Bagan. Things can be often cloudy in the morning so it might be hard to see, but cloud soon burns o...  more »

  • Peaceful pagoda at the hill top. Nice panorama view of surroundings, despite the misty scene is likely resulting from the city pollutions.
  • One of most famous Saging.. This place is famous for scenery and folklore said no one able to donate early rice donations. Some said it has always been donated by spirits and angles.
  • Nice Place
  • It’s one of the oldest of the many pagodas in Sagaing. Sitting high on top of Nga-pha Hill, one of dozens of hilltops in the Sagaing Hills, it was built in 1312 by Minister Pon Nya, after whom it’s named. We can’t miss the giant statue of Gautama Buddha that dominates one end, tower higher than the walls around him. He looks unusually cheery. The hill on which the pagoda sits is shaped a little like a frog. Which is how it got its name. And it also explains the large frog-shaped donation box we saw inside.
  • Quiet and peaceful place with a grate view of Ayayarwady River from the pagoda.
