  • Be surprised to watch one of the largest Buddha in Myanmar. It's architecture is from the old world school. Most of the filigree work is done in teak and metal and has a shimmery golden glow.  more »
  • Are in Yangon. Seen the pagodas? So make sure to visit the temples that are home to the most beautiful Buddhas from Yangon. The Nga Htat Gyi is located in a very simple and the location can be unfriendly, but there is one of the most beautiful pictures of Yangon. Imagine a Buddha sitting with over 14 meters! Enjoy a visit to admire the devotion of the people and to monitor more closely the lives of locals. And since I went to visit this temple, enjoy to walk a few steps and visit the Chaukhtatgyi Buddha Temple, where is the reclining Buddha. Good ride and recommend this visit!

  • Another Hugh white buddha, close to chuak htat kyi pagoda.
  • I visited after Chaukhtatgyi Paya. It is just opposite to it. The long walk before entering the temple might let you give up, just keep walking you will find it is a nice and peaceful place to take good rest. And there are also come Thai buddha images there. I would recommend to add more English translations on the introduction of the history and buddha stature. Watch it with not much background story is not satisfied to the tourist I think. There is no entrance fee but a donation box in front writes "FOREIGNERS ARE REQUESTED TO CONTRIBUTE US AS YOUR WISH FOR RENOVATION OF THE PAGODA", I have donated but with uncomfortable feeling that I got a kind of force since I am a foreigner. As for me, I think a reasonable entrance fee is much better than this kind of donation.
  • A smaller but peaceful pagoda. There's a wall with an optical illusion installation.
  • l like Buddha image the most.it is the most beauty Myanmar art.
  • Located opposite the old temple is a temple of the sleeping Buddha or disputations. Also, please careful requesting admission is free admission this temple and Temple of the sleeping Buddha or disputations of the opposite, so the fact Myanmar people had. I lost 5000 K. I want to quit so offended. Shooting methods have a chance so I took up.
