Enormous Buddha, very ornate, quite a thing, the wooden structure built around it is quite something too, well worth a look.

It worth to visit, Nga Htat Gyi Pagoda. The Buddha image has a unique Burmese clothing wear and all dress up. Unlike the other Buddha image you would find in another part of Asia. Plus the wooden craft was beautiful.

The giant during Buddha is a sight to behold. The carvings behind him are notable too. This monastery can be visited when you visit the reclining Buddha. It's built by the same donor.

It is massive and great to see first hand. Not too far from the centre of town but will need a driver or vehicle to get there.

A taxi is required to get here, but you can also visit the Chaukhtatgyi Paya at the same time, it is just across the road. After walking up the numerous stairs, which need a really good clean - lots of stray dogs and hence dog poo everywhere, we reached the pagoda. It was quiet and very few people around, which... More

Not far from the Chaukhtatgyi Paya, which makes viewing them both a worthwhile experience. Disappointed that there was no cold bottle of water provide upon entry (as travel literature would have you believe), but then there was no entry fee either (as also reported). A little simpler than the Chaukhtatgyi Paya, but worth the visit.

Next to the more famous reclining Buddha Chaukhtatgyi, this Pagoda is worth visiting! I have seen many Buddha statues but this one was impressive. The work on the detail is beautiful. At the entrance I was greeted by a gentleman who showed me pictures of him teaching homeless kids English in the monastery next door and asking for a 5000kyat... More
