“Small, shiny pagoda”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

A small but nice temple about halfway from my hotel in Chinatown and Shwedagon Pagoda. It's covered in mirrors that give it an impressive shiny, silver look.
There were no other tourists there during my 15 minute visit, and I suspect they wouldn't get many tourists overall. Colorful tiles cover the inside walls that contain several Buddha statues. It's close to other sights and worth a quick visit.

“Lovely Unknown Pagoda”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

I found this pagoda on Trip Advisor. Thank you to those who reviewed it. Even our guide did not know about this pagoda, but our driver did.

It is lovely both inside and out. It has lots of interesting details and is worth time to study.

Almost no one is there, so it's peaceful and quiet. You could actually take to meditate here and likely have a wonderful experience.

“Mirrored temple "wallpapered" in thousands of tiny Buddhas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

The outside of this almost completely unvisited pagoda is covered in mirror mosaic, making it look almost as if it were a mirage. The inside is covered in thousands of tiny Buddha sculptures. Some fantastic nats live in the courtyard. A wonderful discovery on the walk to Shwedagon, this is certainly my favourite temple in Yangon.
