Kakku Pagodas, Taunggyi

(4.6/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
A little off the beaten track, 600-year-old Kakku Pagodas attract visitors with the sheer number of pagodas in such a small space. Built side-by-side, the religious structures provide an interesting sighting and heritage learning experience, and surround one main, bigger pagoda. Each structure has its own ornaments and statues, and twinkling chimes decorate the air. Try to organise a good guide to teach you about the history and the Pa-O people who live in the area. Before you head to Taunggyi, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Taunggyi trip generator, to make sure you see all that Taunggyi has to offer, including Kakku Pagodas.

  • Look at the 1st picture. It was taken from the lake inside the right hand side of the pagoda. Although the weather's even worst , you won't feel any hot when you enter it.  more »
  • Purpose of this archaeological site near Inle Lake. Hotels consult by email at time of booking, I arrange a car and driver, departure from the hotel by car. And beyond the Taunggyi, look at what you need to go to the ruins in the city of Taunggyi and Yu Pao family to hire a guide and that, even though I was asleep in the car, I was flabbergasted! And asked the driver, impatient in the ruins I pay admission charges and tour guides were charged admission price went to the ruins, because the word was believed and no guide (lol) I put should not enter after all without a guide to Pao in the. The Pao tribe and wanted to take pictures, and do not know the meaning of, sorry. Also was not understood remains reflected in the pond is famous, but very much looking for pond is likely to not even listening to my uncle who had repaired the ruins, listening to the children who were playing in the ruins of the entrance pointed the finger back and hear the flip side of this said, that's not it! And small wasn't really behind the Straits was smiling and everyone was taken from here, like a 水溜me. Spot you probably guided Bernat absolute soon found out, this is not it? Guides are not really, sorry. Incidentally, I went to sunset as guides, not tourists but now at all, so just like what I like in 撮rimakurete photos, is just that good.

  • Approximately 2 hours drive from Inle Lake, if arrived at Lake do not have time to see Kakku back home knowing you didn't see a truly beautiful and fascinating. Only fault is the restoration of the pagodas that are not up to the importance of the site. Recommended. .
