Was built science 1902 and well maintained. The huge plates of wood curving can be seen at the back of the Buddha image.

Very simple and traditional Pagoda with a lot of local people coming to visit and pay respect. Very relaxing and quiet. close to Chaukhtatgyi Paya (walking distance). Interesting to visit both places at the same time

Very near to Chaukhtatgyi Paya (walking distance), this place is very original with a lot of locals coming on the weekend. Nice representation of Buddha.

One of the older pagodas in Yangon. It has been shaped by several wars and trying to be restored. This pagoda is surrounded by several monasteries dating back to the 1700's.

Whilst there is nothing as spectacular as many of the other sights in Yangon, the ambiance of the place is very appealing. Around the walls of the building are a number of interesting shrines etc well worth seeing.

Here is a great temple in size and impact. Special air about the place and fun to walk all around and watch the locals as they pray.

A lovely Buddha, with perhaps a slightly different face from most. The wood carving behind him is very impressive. Make sure you walk all the way around and have a good look at it all. Free to get in and very friendly security man!

I found this to be a much more serene space than the other pagodas. The woodwork is simply stunning.

We saw this one on the same run as the Chaukhtatgyi reclining buddha. It's a different style so it makes an interesting counterpoint.

This is an exquisite sitting buddha. Best of all, there was hardly anyone, so I was able to take my time taking photos from different angles.
