Next to the more famous reclining Buddha Chaukhtatgyi, this Pagoda is worth visiting! I have seen many Buddha statues but this one was impressive. The work on the detail is beautiful. At the entrance I was greeted by a gentleman who showed me pictures of him teaching homeless kids English in the monastery next door and asking for a 5000kyat... More

Beautiful sitting Buddha with magnificent Wood carvings behind. Study the carvings as you go around, it's worth it!

This pagoda is home to the “FIVE STORY BUDDHA”, a 45 foot tall sitting Buddha. I arrived early in the morning and the sun was shining in through windows high above. This Pagoda is tucked away in a residential area and not very crowded but most impressive.

Entry is free to this pagoda. You can reach it by sheltered stairs which are easy on the knees. The premises is quite clean.

Ok, been travelling around Asia now for 5 weeks and I can't tell you how many Buddha statues we have seen, each beautiful in their own way but this one here might be the most beautiful we have seen on this trip! Stunning! It won't take you long to see this place so take 10 minutes and don't miss it!

Short look around NGA HTAT GYI PAGODA on 25/06/16 with my friend Smith while holidaying for 2 weeks in the Chinatown area of Yangon from 21/06/16 Spent around 20 mins with friend Smith around the Buddha and temple with my busy schedule ahead in visiting many other attractions for tourists.
