This was built by the King Ba Yin Naung. The distinctive of this pagoda is participating ladders that's men can go to the upper part (the middle of pagoda) where we can see over view of the whole Bago city. There is a small portrait...More

One special thing about this stupa is it's colour. The upper part is white, which isn't common. The other thing is that you can climb stairs to go almost to the top, but only if you are a man. I know :-(. I did that...More

The pagoda is unique in architecture and design. Though men can go to the high upper part of the pagoda, it was not allowed during the rainy season. There is also an ancient pagoda, which looks like those in Bagan, within the compound. You can...More

like most sites in Bago, also this one is impressive in size, but poor in artistic value. walk once around the stupa and try to find anything worth your attention... I didn't find anything, beside the mere size of it.

Can see the panoramic views of reclining buddha image and Mazinn dam.But for those who have high fear shouldn't try to climb. Can get something different feeling of climbing up to the pagoda compare with Bagan because Only Men can climb up.

A boring pagoda that doesnt let women up to the top. The staircases to the top were actually closed when we came here. Otherwise place is dull and filthy.
