I wanted to see this place. When I arrived there was only me and another tourist. Only in the caves there was about 8500 Buddha statues , not counting those outside. If was a great think to see the respect they show to there religion

There are two entrances in this complex. The caves contain many statues but they are not ancient or better than the Pintaya caves. But it is fairly central to all the tourists main hotpots.

You see in Myanmar dozens of thousands of Buddha's. Here you walk in a cave among 8000 sculptures of Buddha. Very unique very nice. The cave itself is nice, with the Buddha's it is amazing.

The cave is not that big compared to other cave pagodas in Myanmar. Even in Kalaw, there's a cave pagoda which is a much better place to visit called "Myin Ma Hti" cave.

We spent nearly two hours wandering through the caves only to find statues of the Buddha everywhere. Our guide told us that there were 8,000 Buddha images. I believe it. It was an interesting exposure to a culture where 80 percent of the population is...More

Hey! I am sorry but I never took a taxi for such long journey. Buses are pretty convenient, though. Quite comfortable and they have night buses so, it's easier to travel. Sorry, I wish I could be of some more help.. Or... More
