A serene looking seated Buddha image in a peaceful sanctuary. The image sits in gold-and-white repose against a beautiful intricately carved wooden backdrop. Very unique. This temple is across the street from Chaukhtatgyi Paya, where a revered reclining Buddha image can be found, making it a convenient stop to cover two temples in less time. Donations help the temple's upkeep.

This temple is just across the road from Chauk Htat Gyi Buddha (the giant buddha) so take a taxi and ask the driver to take you to both and wait. You will not be disappointed. The main statue is breathtaking and the other sculptures and artwork are extremely interesting. Recommended

Visiting in August 2014, the ambience was quiet, though there were many buddhists quietly praying. There were some statues and wall paintings of Buddha's teach to read. In front of the temple by the street, there was a friendly vendor selling many local goodies and candies. On the way up to the temple, it could be slippery when raining, so... More

The difference of this pagoda from other ones in Yangon is its wood carving panels behind the Budda statue. It shows skillful crafts of Myanmar people.

This was a really impressive pagoda, but our visit was interrupted by a nice seeming fellow who turned out to be a con trying to take us to an orphanage. Worth the visit, but with most places, keep your head on a swivel.

Except for the gigantic statue of Buddha, the place is not so impressive. However, if you want peace and quiet with hardly any tourists, this is the place to visit.

It takes 20-30 minutes to reach this place by car. The entrance to the pagoda is a grandiose gate surrounded by two giant mythical beasts, making it hard to miss. Footwear is not allowed once inside and there is a small hike before reaching the Buddha. The massive reclining Buddha itself is a sight to behold and there is plenty... More
