We went here with a guide on our way to the Shwedagon Pagoda and it was unlike any Buddha I had ever seen before. The Ab Fab of Buddhas! Completely over the top with blue glass eyes, bright red lips and nails and housed in a large tin shed! He is enormous at 70 metres long. Our guide made the... More

It's so over the top. I think the reclining Buddha at Wat Po in Bangkok is much more spectacular. Lots of dogs around. Not much in terms of informative history at the location

This is worth a visit but it is a little out of the way and I wouldn't recommend a special trip - we did it it as part of a tour round the sites of Yangon. The Buddha is quite unusual and very well maintained

We visited the Buddha as part of a guided tour of Yangon and at 70 metres long It's very impressive. The best way to see Yangon is to get a guide and a car, we paid $90, they picked us up at our hotel at 8am and dropped us back there at 4.30pm.

Spectacular size & interesting to see. Rather out of the way, so you will need a taxi each way. Spend about 30 mins there.

This Buddha is unlike any I have seen. The features are very beautiful and have gentle colours. There are many people and monks worshipping.

This place is further out of town likely mid-way to the airport. It is worth a visit as it had a large sleep Buddha. When we were there it was less crowded. Take note like all temples and Pagodas, dress code need to be strictly adhered to. Saw a few female tourists been turned back. Off course like all sites... More

Not as interesting as some of the other sights in this city but worth the visit as it is quite an amazing Budha

My second time at the temple! I just love this reclining Buddha image. It is so beautiful and the atmosphere at the temple invites for a meditation or just a quiet time.
