Sadly it was under construction or renovation when I give a visit. But worth to visit since the Buddha's status is the largest Buddha's status I have ever seen. There are many drawings explain Buddha's history which were interesting to look around. Many people were...More

Worth a visit, probably my favourite Buddha. Not as crowded as I thought it would be. A peaceful place to sit. Donations are asked for.

It is a hidden holy site which is approximately 10 minutes drive from Yangon city centre. Originally the reclining Buddha was on the open-air site. A philanthropist had donated to build the covered shelter for the reclining Buddha. Profile of the philanthropist can be seen...More

It is a must see! The reclining Buddha of Chaukhatatgyi is one of the tourist must see when in Yangon. Aside from the numerous Pagodas this location is a religious site. Many people come here to pray as there is a room/segment dedicated for Thai...More

Quite a site. Be sure to walk around the whole reclining Buddha to see the bottom of the feet. Also see the small Buddhas each with a different hand position behind the reclining Buddha.

Reclining Buddha was massive. Very beautiful. No entrance fee. Shoes must be removed. Not very clean place. But beautiful Buddhas & history inside. Must visit

A huge reclining Buddha. Not a whole lot to say about it, really. Definitely worth a visit, but only takes 20-30 minutes.

The sheer size of the buddha is astonishing and this alone makes the trip to Chaukhtatgyi a must while in Yangon. If you go first thing in the morning you may even find yourself in virtual solitude.

Very impressive temple. It does get crowded with tour buses. One needs a taxi to get there, kind of hidden. Beautiful reclining Buddha.

I would say the visit needs 1 hour at most. It is a small place and it really depends on how much time you will take for photos and looking around. We had a guide for the day but it takes around 20-30 minutes from down town... More
