This Buddha, which is large enough to crawl inside if you like dark tight spaces, is supposed to be made of bamboo. If fact it's made of sawdust and resin. It's quite impressive, but the temple in which it sits is nothing special.

The Buddha is a very impressive sight and worth having to take your shoes and socks off for.

The rest of the complex is also interesting and definitely worth wandering around.

A great temple with a 7 meter tall gold Buddha in Salay. We drove visiting craftmakers and temples from Bagan on a day trip it was worth it.

This temple shrine is well worth the detour deep into the country side at Salay....

You can take refreshments at Salay house before or after your visit....

The bhudda is very special... found years ago floating in the river it is hollow and made of bamboo...

More than likely you will be alone here to enjoy peace and tranquillity....

A very special place....

About one and a half hours south of Began by car...

The one standout at this small temple in Salay is the huge 7m tall lacquer Buddha statue. Well worth visiting as you walk through Salay. Interesting statues in the gardens outside too.

This Buddha is a hollow lacquer ware Buddha that was found floating in the river. Once it was retrieved they set it up in this temple. This is not the only site in Sale, make sure you make it to Yoke Soun Kyaung Taw Gyi wooden monastery. It is no longer a monastery, but a museum. Very interesting. The Salay House is also very interesting with a small cafe and local crafts. Be careful on the stairs, quite steep and narrow. The problem here are the venders. They are pests and they do not give up when you say no.

The temple grounds are quite nice but be prepared to be pestered by young Monks??? That try to get you give them money.

Inside there is a large Lacquerware Buddha which you can ly down and stick your head in at the back to see inside it.

Make sure that you take a wander around Salay as it is a lovely town with loads of British Colonial buildings

We were there on the super moon night and everyone was getting their fire works ready.

Sale or Salay is on the Irrawaddy and it is worth walking around this village easily accessible from river if you are on a cruise that stops there. This temple is quite small and its main Buddha is very impressive. Don't miss Salay House reasonably nearby for refreshments and local crafts.
