Amazing Nga Htat Gyi Pagoda

Like all temples in Myanmar be prepared to take off your foot wear and make sure you are dressed appropriately. The ambience is calm and serene just beautiful for meditation.

This was the first pagoda we visited, it was awesome in its size and interesting to learn about the days of the week that are sacred. Defintely do not miss and have a look at the surrounding monastery if someone offers.

Much more impressive compared to Chaykhtatgyi Paya which is just across the road. It is worth combining these two pagodas together.

I a little bit distant but really worth visiting. The Chaukhtatgyi Buddha is just across the street and the walk in the surroundings quite interesting.

The huge Buddha in this pagoda is situated in a massive temple made of beautiful wood carvings. The traditional architecture of the Pagoda and the grounds are beautiful. We did not get to experience the total beauty because the Buddha statue was surrounded with bamboo scaffolds due to renovation. However, it was still worthwhile our time to visit the Pagoda.

It worth to visit, Nga Htat Gyi Pagoda. The Buddha image has a unique Burmese clothing wear and all dress up. Unlike the other Buddha image you would find in another part of Asia. Plus the wooden craft was beautiful.

Enormous Buddha, very ornate, quite a thing, the wooden structure built around it is quite something too, well worth a look.

The giant during Buddha is a sight to behold. The carvings behind him are notable too. This monastery can be visited when you visit the reclining Buddha. It's built by the same donor.
