  • Since this pagoda near the big lying Buddha is, she should be absolutely visited. During our visit in the evening it was very quiet, just some locals at prayer were to be met. The large seated Buddha is very impressive, the Hall where the stations of Buddhas are shown life, is worth a 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.
