“Very nice pagoda”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

Botatoung pagoda is one off the brilliant art and Buddha history, I've saw one of the leaf in the glass cupboard that mentioned it's from the tree that where the Buddhist were born ... Not sure if it's true.. But we will go visit again in April and will spend more time to read all the information...

“Beautiful, Accessible, Lots of Action”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

I highly recommend this pagoda complex and consider it a must-see. It's beautiful with gold covered walls inside. It is very popular with devout Buddhist, so there are lots of offerings and other activity in progress which makes it interesting and real. Most of the pilgrims seem to be Thai. The complex is purported to have hair and a tooth from Buddha, but that is probably not the case.

“Smaller in scale but less crowded”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

I enjoyed this temple since it was not as crowded as Shwedagon. We were able to enter the stupa (the dome like structure of the pagoda) and it was literally gold from floor to ceiling. We had a good time taking loads of pics and people watching.

“OK pagoda with quite a lot of action”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

OK pagoda with many visitors and a lot of local action inside and outside. But not really a must-see.
