  • Good and peaceful place to visit. Buddha statue in sitting position. Unfortunately it was under maintenance when I visited so the statue was completely covered. Enjoy the rare pics.  more »
  • A lovely pagoda in the hearts of the city. This temple is not as popular as other large temples, but I think it’s worth a visit  more »
  • Currently under wraps for repair, but still worth a visit to view the interior and giant Buddha statue.  more »

  • A massive warehouse that has been converted into a pagoda. It houses a 100 year old sitting buddha image that is 9 meter tall and 14 meter wide. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Nearby and walkable from the Chauk Htat Kyi buddha (Reclining Buddha) is the Ngar Htat Gyi Pagoda which houses the sitting Buddha. With it's towering height, I would totally encourage you to see it should you be in the area. It's just across the street from the reclining buddha. Entrance is free. Foreigners are encouraged to donate. However donations are still up to you ultimately.
  • Very different trusties with great management and best caring to vistor.
  • One of the best places to visit if you're a buddhist.
  • I didn't get to see the temple because I was taken away by a "monk" who showed me another place which was not the temple, he was quite aggressive and insisted to get a "donation". I think it was a drug addict (nervous, black teeth) who pretended to be a monk. If you go to see any temple, never accept any spontaneous help
