I visited there on July 14 morning. It was nice place in Inle and one of the must see place for tourist due to it's ancient wood carving and antique style monastery. It's lovely place as well.

Notable for it's locale perhaps more so than it's content, it's nonetheless worth a look when your touring about Inle Lake. It's done in teak, with teak Buddhas in it's center area, and with additional Buddhas strewn about the Monastery. Many locals and Monks are...More
You will visit this during the Inle Lake Boat Tour. I have to say that it was not very interesting compared to all the nice craftsmanship and workshops that we visited. This is just a monastery which is made out igloos and people in front...More
it seems the jumping cats have gone, but don't let that stop you from coming here. It's a peaceful, restful place where you feel at home sitting, contemplating. And there were two cats there when we were there who loved the attention of everyone -...More

NGA Phe Kyaung Monastery might not be as nice and beautiful as other Buddha places, but it is a simple monastery with many Buddha Images, but what was meaningful to me was the 18 picture in English of Buddha Life.These 18 pictures I will always...More
Seems like the cats have gotten fat and lazy and don't jump any more. However, the Monastery is very nice. The monastery is built of teak and gold leaf in the style of Shan Buddha. There are a variety of unique Buddha statues.
Enjoyed tour of Nge Phe Kyaung Monastery. I enjoyed the art work of the history of Buddha with English subtitle. This gave me more insight of Buddha and his life. If you are interested in learning more about Buddha, I recommend you to visit here.
