This is an open air large Buddha. It is longer than its neighbour, the Shwetalyaung Buddha. The Mya Tha Lyaung reclining Buddha is however, not as impressive as the Shwetalyaung Buddha. This Buddha was sculpted in 2002. Funding was provided by a wealthy Burmese business...More

SK/EN budha je naozaj velky, treba vidiet. Bezvstupu. Potrebujete nieco dlhe alebo sarong, ramena maju byt zahalene. EN: The buddha is really big. Entry is free. You need a sarong (or something long), is not allowed to have uncovered your shoulder.

This one is likely to be on your Bago itinerary and it is well worth visiting it. I guess at some point any person reaches a reclining Buddha saturation point but this one stands out for its size as well as how carefully carved/constructed it...More

Not much to see here really. It was a huge reclining Buddha, just as advertised. I have seen a number of these in a number of places, this one was not anything out of the ordinary. Due to recent rains it was very muddy. I...More

It was hot when we were there, so couldn't walk close to this Buddha. But from a far, it is massively amazing. Worth the Bago trip. Do it from Yangon, closest to it.
