A huge complex with an amazing Buddha statue which unfortunately has been restored at the time of my visit. But it has been a nice experience to see the people staying there on New Years Day.

At the moment they are working on this statue and there is bamboo scaffolding around it. This did not detract too much from the pleasure of seeing it.

I was there in the late afternoon around 4:45pm and there were hardly any visitors. There were about 4 other foreign tourists and possibly 6 local worshippers for prayers. Two different people tried to point out to me a specific location for taking pictures, but...More

Nga That Gyi has a huge seated Buddha image housed in an iron structure pavilion with a five-tiered corrugated iron roof. Another great pagoda for photos.

Again a nice budha, but for me, this one had something special. It looks more authentic I guess. It’s close to the reclining budha, so I would take the small detour. Free entrance, no tourists, be careful for the friendly people giving you an explanation....More

The Nga Htat Gyi pagoda is a little off the beaten track—down a dirt road flanked with vendors and abuzz with activity, through an archway and up a small hill, and down a quiet road past monasteries and sleeping dogs. Perhaps because of the location,...More

This is one of my favourite Pagodas in Yangon. Once you run the gauntlet of locals trying to sell you stuff and actually get up to Buddha statue you'll be glad you made the effort. The sitting Buddha is the most beautiful I have ever...More

Not as touristy and less crowded. The crowned Buddha statue is very beautiful. Especially if you are Asian, read this! If someone approached you and tell you he has a 91-year old uncle who is a monk in the nearby Chauk-htat-gyi temple, be careful. Long...More

We wanted to find the sleeping Buddha, but we ended up there. The pagoda has a very long stairway of ascension from the main road. The Buddha statue looks impressive though it is of lesser touristical value than the so called sleeping Buddah across the...More
