2.13.2014 -- the main highlight in Nga Htat Gyi Pagoda is this imposing, beautiful 65 ft. seated buddha. It has down-cast eyes and the most tranquil and peaceful expression. Strangely, just gazing at the Buddha calmed my spirits and nerves. It was humbling and good for the soul. Magical!

This temple has nothing special except the big white with golden cloth buddha image. The image is lovely that maybe worth for less than 15 minutes to admire.

It is an unusual pagoda with a seated buddha wearing decorative armour and it has so many different figures in it which I presume tell the story of Buddha. It is being restored, repaired at the moment so had scaffolding around it. Because it is a bit different to all the other pagodas it's worth spending some time in it.

There are much bigger and beautiful pagodas around for instance Chauk That Gyi Budda in the vicinity of Nga htat is even grander compared to this pagoda but what makes it worth the trip is the huge statue of Buddha that is unlike anything I had seen before with the unique garment and adornment and pose. The place also has... More

A very much newer building and one with many fewer Buddha images but it is fully functional and you can enjoy watching a school in action. It seems like it's one class for the youngest to the oldest and a chance to see them chanting, singing, doing work etc proving that no matter ehere you go schoolkids are schoolkids and... More

Near another attractive Buddha jut opposite the street. Just combine the two. The statue is amazing! Ofcourse, Schwedagon is much nicer as a whole, but you can not see such a nice huge sitting Buddha there. We saw also a class of students (regular visitors those days) ditting in a classroom behind the statue, and a 'school' with very young... More

The pagoda itself may not be that appealing from the outside. What you'll see inside is simply amazing. A very tall seated Buddha image is waiting for you after taking a few steps up. This was our last stop before we headed for our lunch destination. The place is quite serene and not crowded unlike most of the other pagoda... More

This attraction is listed twice on Trip Advisor as Nga Htat Gyi Pagoda and as Ngahtatyi Paya. They are the same thing. This is a huge beautiful seated Buddha in a large, but relaxed and peaceful setting. There were very few people here. I could have stayed for a while. The outfit and style of this Buddha is a bit...

After seeing Shwedagon then you can probably skip this Pagoda unless you are really into Pagoda's. Its located right next to Chauk That Gyi Budda which is probably more unique to see.

It's a very well built and beautifully maintained pagoda with excellent sculptured statues of Lord Buddha.
