  • This pagoda is located on the south side of the Chatuchak Pagoda. There is a main shrine which passes through the entrance from the main street and climbs the slope. There were a lot of people in this place, and the person was sparse though the Chattterzipagoda which had visited here before was crowded. The local person who prays intently while watching a huge Buddha is seen while sitting, and the time flows very slowly. I personally liked the pagoda. The sculpture of the wood behind the Buddha is also a highlight.

  • Impressive and we were spontaneously invited to a wedding party and celebrate with Burmese. A first-class experience.

  • It is just a few minutes ' walk from the famous Chaweng Buddha Pagoda. Here, there is a big Buddha, and it is a very big temple, and I think that it is worth seeing.

  • 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
