This Pagoda with an spectacular huge image of a sitting Buda is certainly worth visit in a combine visit to the nearby Chaukhtgyi Para with the huge reclining Buda. And there are only a few tourist!

Don't miss this pagoda which is very close to the Chauk Htat Gyi Buddha. It certainly lives up to its name of "5 storey Buddha", with an exquisite carved wooden backdrop.

Nga Htat Gyi Pagoda is curious in that, after taking the long steps up from the road (and leaving your shoes) you enter into something that looks very like an aircraft hangar. I quickly becomes apparent that this is no accident - the 7-storey (sometime called the 9-storey) Buddha is a towering figure, and yet elegantly simple and serene. There... More

Inside the main pagoda are some stories and painting. Worth a visit if you have some free time in Yangon.

Near to the Chaukatgyi paya, this pagoda was quite peaceful, with very little people. The statue was impressive, one can spend some quite time in this peaceful pagoda.

I chose the title the 'big secret' Pagoda as it was not indicated on my Yangon City Map. I found it as interesting and as attractive as the reclining Buddha Pagoda with the additional... More

A lovely temple with less visitors. Located across the street from the Chauk Htat Gyi Pagoda, this pagoda is housed in a large pavilion. Lovely murals adorn the walkway leading up to the temple. Also known as the five storey Buddha, the Buddha image measures 14 metres high. There is an entrance fee of 2000 kyats. Visit if you are... More
