This is an impressive monastery hall and it is a quick 10 minute visit next to the impressive Shwe Nandaw Kyaung monestary. Good photo opportunity outside on the side near the huge golden doors.

This was very close to the Teak Temple so we popped by a little. A few nice spots at the entrance for photos!
