Seated Buddha with Flaming Armor!

How cool is that!? This Buddha is unlike most in the country due to the flaming armor. It is likely that you will see many other reclining Buddhas while in the country so it's... read more

How cool is that!? This Buddha is unlike most in the country due to the flaming armor. It is likely that you will see many other reclining Buddhas while in the country so it's definitely worth the short visit here. It is easily walkable from Chaukhtatgyi Paya, and if you want directions I just typed them out in my review... More

Nga Htata Gyi pagoda is very unique having a huge peaceful seated buddha image adorned with a beautiful golden armour. Our rental car could go all the way up to the entrance of the pagoda. No entrance fee. It was close to lunch time and very few people around. It was very calm and peaceful atmosphere inside. Check out the... More

It was better than all Pagodas I visited this day, even Shwedegon. Wasn't too rushy and it was quieter too.

The Buddha here is really imposing. the most important is brief history of Budda from his birth is painted on the wall very graphically. Also there is huge serpent sculpture. Very good area to sit/ kneel and pray in this pagoda. The enter ace is through about 200 steps or so. Place to visit.

An impressive seated Buddha ( called five storied Buddha) of the sixteenth century lies in a huge hall with outstanding background teak wood decoration. Paintings on the walls, glass windows and raised ceiling adds to the effect.Must visit.The intricate golden coloured crown and robe creates an aura like effect.

The Buddha image is rather impressive. In fact, I would say it is far more impressive than the large reclining Buddha next door at Chauk Htat Gyi. It seems better crafted and just captivates you more. Maybe the expression on the Buddha's face is more welcoming. Because I find the one at Chauk Htat Gyi a bit aloof and not... More

The temples in Myanmar are so very amazing & so large & well maintained, Its very difficult to express in words how magnificient they are,My advice see as many if possible.The people are so very pious & very charming. The greatest aspect is that none of the temples have any beggars inside or around the place.

Just a five minute walk from chauk htat gyi (reclining buddha) that is across the road, this is a worthy visit. When you arrive at the main entrance where you place your footwear on shelves, look up and read the moralistic writings in english and accompanying paintings. I loved the magical feel of reflective glass tiles on the side pillars... More

Beautiful Buddha image - I go here often when I am in Yangon - it is my favourite place to sit and contemplate and just BE.

This is an impressive monument just from the shear size. $2 taxi from downtown. Free to enter with a donation. Worth a look if you have time and easy to tack on to Schwedagon visit. Also go see Chaukhtatgyi across the road and stop at Kandawgyi lake on the way back if you fancy a trouble free stroll. Thanks for... More
