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

Another Buddha to see and spend 10 or 15 minutes taking pictures We were always disappointed that we had to take her shoes off and walk through dirty places because of religious concerns when we got home we had to stop and wash our feet

Although the building is not as grand a Botahtaung Paya or Shwe Dagon Zedi Daw, its 30 feet tall Buddha seated on a pedestal lords over the entire temple.....the hugeness of the image was for me a humbling experience

The Buddha statue is great, but I'm writing to warn everyone about 2 characters that like to approach foreigners and lie to them for money. At this temple, either an attractive young man, an old man with glasses ( the young man's "uncle"), or both of them will approach you and offer to show you something outside the temple grounds....

Maybe because I went and visited the Nga Htat Gyi and Chauk Htat Gyi Payas before I went to the Shwedagon Pagoda, I found them delightful! This is a really tall Buddha statue in a seated position. Although he has an very calm and peaceful expression on his face, the Buddha is actually wearing a gold robe shaped like an... 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.
