They have built a huge hall in the rock which looks like an indoor sports hall. I would love to be there when it is full of monks chanting. Unfortunately this wasn’t the case but I used my imagination

Not worth going out of your way to go here, but you can combine with visiting nearby Buddhas. Entrance has jade embedded into the walls. You wouldn't know you were inside a cave, it's just a huge auditorium where the monks take their exams

This beautiful cave which mainly made of Burmese produced jade and it was here whereby the International Buddhist council was held. The hall is so solemn and serene. Mahapasana cave is nearby Kaya Aye Pagoda which has the relics of Buddha and 2 chief disciples.

This is where the monks gather for the examinations, it's like a lecture hall themed. Industrial use jades covering most of the pillar. As it's a cave it's cool inside!

Really peaceful place to visit. Closed to the next Kabaraye Pagoda. Easy to travel with public transport.

The Mahapasana Cave is very close to the Kabar Aye Pagoda, so if you're there or at the Gems Museum, do make a trip to this. It has beautiful exteriors. The interior is not spectacular but it's definitely peaceful and quiet.
