Very popular, probably the most popular attraction in Pindaya. There is an elevator so you do not have to climb much. Very busy and cave is fill with all kinds of Buddhas. Cave is massive. Do not expect it to be some out of the way cave with few tourists. major tourist attraction.

A rather bizarre and vast collection of Buddhas inside massive caves at Pindaya. Well worth a stop if you are on the road because of its quirkiness. You wonder what mindset started a trend of building Buddhas of all sizes in a cave. Indeed we wandered at this throughout as we drove around Myanmar! The more, of course, the merrier!

Well worth a visit. Amazing spectacle. Hadn't really appreciated the scale of the cave and number of budda images.

.....on entering this series of caves. It's a very holy site and to ensure access for all there is a choice of covered walk up or elevators. We took the elevator up but walked back down. There is so much to see that you really just don't know where to look first and there are quite a number of caves and caverns to visit. There are Buddha images of every conceivable size, shape, style, colour in every nook and cranny. All been lovingly placed there by some devout family or individual and all bearing different meanings and intentions, I'm sure, dependent on the donor. This is an amazing experience. Don't miss it if you can possibly get there. The path up from the carpark is fun. It has all sorts of large concrete images, notably a large globe where even NZ is featured (good one, Burma), a series of statues which more or less equates to Shakespeares speech for Jacque about the Ages of Man, and most amusingly, an enormous and supposed to be scary spider perched right by the steps! Do note that shoes have to be left behind and that the pathways and steps inside the cave can be slippery and uneven. A most facsinating visit. Allow at least a couple of hours.

Only one and a half hour away from Kalaw (driving a motorcycle) this cave is a great place and the perfect thing to do before starting the trekking to Inle lake. More than 8000 budha status inside gives this cave a really unique atmosphere. it is not crowded with tourists (at least when we were there). on the other hand you will get to see a lot of local people coming here on a pilgrimage. Important to note : like any other Buddhist place you must respect a certain dress code: no shoes or socks, no short pants (up knee level) and for the ladies no spaghettis strap, naked shoulders etc... I highly recommend to visit this place.
