  • 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.

  • 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

  • Currently under wraps for repair, but still worth a visit to view the interior and giant Buddha statue.

  • Quality pagoda in Yangon that is worth a visit. Recently restored and not crowded at all. Peaceful and tranquil place. Easy walk from the lounging Buddha about 15 minutes away. You get to walk through some traditional neighborhoods which is interesting. Worth a quick stop of your are nearby.

  • The pagoda is located on the hill. So we have to climb a bit. There is a big Buddha image and worth to visit. The hills behind the pagoda have many monastery and walking around this area is also enjoyable.
  • No English, but had some pictures of the life of the Buddha with an English sentence, it read, practicing extreme samatha, ariya sacca dukkha?
  • 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.
