I have been here twice and never had any western tourists. In fact I never really had other visitors around me either. It is a very beautiful Buddha image with a huge temple built around it. Very quiet and great for a meditation.

This impressive Buddha located on a small hill is well worth visiting when in Yangon. It is only 300 meters from the Chaukhtatgyi Buddha which we consder the Nr. 2 attraction in Yangon - after the Swedagon Pagoda complex.

Literally across the road from another of Yangon's best temples (Chaukhtatgyi Paya). Tip for men: to avoid wearing trousers in the blistering heat, buy a longyi (type of male sarong worn by Burmese men) in advance and carry around in your pack for each Paya.

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.

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.

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.
