“Just across street from Chaukhtatgyi Paya”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

You'll meet very big seated Buddha here. He is painted with colours. There are many colorful lights shining back of him which makes him look quite tacky but we understand this is their way to respect Buddha, where as we Japanese are so used to simple, monotone color Buddha. There are figures to describe buddhism story surrounding him. Admission fee is 2 US$ per person. You'll get a bottle of cold water when you buy ticket, which is a nice service, after walking some steps. You can visit Chaukhtatgyi Paya before or after here since both are just close to.

“Stunning seated Buddha”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

Just across the road from the reclining Buddha of Chauktatgyi Paya, this is a large and beautiful seated Buddha, backed with an amazing carved wooden screen. Definitely worth a visit. Small charge for taking photos.

“Absolutely amazing, visit this one!”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

This pagoda, not well known and not even mentioned on guide books is really great, the huge seated Buddha (from 1901) in white is great, no tourists here, few locals and people is friendly and explain to you whats happening, even if their English is not perfect...

The pagoda is approx 5 to 10 mins walk from the 70 metres long reclining Buddha, so if you visit this you should try to find Nga Htat Gyi as well; locals could not point me here, as they do not understood what I wanted so I simply followed monks, amd outside the reclining Buddha pagoda there is few coming and going from Nga Htat Gyi...so I got there eventually!

There is an entrance fee of $2 or Ks2,000 in order to make improvements to the Pagoda, and you can see that some works are taking place already, so visit this - is worth it!

Quite a lot to see as there are also lots of smaller buddha's, some quite surprising.
there is an amusing foerigner only toilet under lock and key
When we went there was a display showing what your donations would buy.
NO shops!
