At the moment they are working on this statue and there is bamboo scaffolding around it. This did not detract too much from the pleasure of seeing it.

Nga That Gyi has a huge seated Buddha image housed in an iron structure pavilion with a five-tiered corrugated iron roof. Another great pagoda for photos.
