Better known as "Reclining Buddha"

No stairs to climb, bare footed, though shoes and socks come off as usual. The soles of the feet are interesting and so was the decorating/painting of shrines going on.

The scale of this Reclining Buddha is truly dazzling. The long eyelashes, blue eye shadow, glossy lipstick and painted fingernails add a somewhat surreal spin to it.

Besides Shwedagon Pagoda, this is the other must see in Yangon. It's a huge reclining Buddha with interesting history. Has platform for pictures. Also enjoy the Jataka tales on the walls. No shoes or socks in temple, so bring some foot wipes.

Loved walking around the giant Buddha, lit some incents and enjoyed the atmosphere. The size of this Buddha is truly impressive. I recommend a visit.

The fotos on Tripadvisor give a good impression of this buddha statue of enormous size. You will certainly be impressed by this artwork, admire the soles with all of its decorations and inhale the far eastern spirit. See the Nga Htat Gyi Pagoda just 300 meters away - our Nr. 3 attraction in Yangon.

This reclining Buddha is very long. I think is worth a visit. Must take out shoes as usual. Note : Each mobile phone camera will need to pay.

This was a bit more out of the way from the other sites. There was no ticket counter and we paid ‘tips’ into the plastic containers around the place. Bring your own plastic bag to store your shoes. Otherwise, we have seen others just leaving it on the exterior entrance. This site was one of the smaller sites of all... More

The statue is huge - 65m in length! Though I don't find it exquisite... I find this visit worthwhile nonetheless- at the same time escaping the heat and busy streets! There's a pushcart selling coconuts at the carpark - 1000kyt each. Perfect for a hot afternoon!

What can I say you need to see it to believe it. The reclining Buddha is just gigantic, take special note on the feet you can google it if you don't have a guide to explain.

The size of this female Buddah is amazing. You can take photos from a high platform in located at the feet of the Buddah. You can also see the artist working on the high chairs. Note the different stages of making the chair too much labour goes into this work. There are alot of dogs and cats around but the... More
