We wandered past this temple on our walk out to Shwedagon Pagoda and returned a few days later for a longer visit.. the resident monks welcomed us to explore the grounds and inside the sparkling mirror clad Pagoda.. it had a few devotees praying inside and they didn’t mind us stopping to take in the energy and beauty of the lavish altars and massive Buddha statues ... There is a totally authentic living tradition feel to this temple .. another hidden treasure to be enjoyed in old Rangoon!

Sein Yaung Chi Pagoda is situated on Shwedagon Pagoda Road to the south of the grand Shwedagon Pagoda. It is easy to visit if you are in the area of the Shwedagon Pagoda. Apparently not as well-known as other pagodas but well-worth a look.

Myanmar is the Lands of the Thousands of pagodas and stupas. The gilded stupas seem to dominate most religious landscape in Mandalay and Yangon. But Sein Yaung Chi Pagoda with her glittering glossy stupa is an exception. I was walking my way from the downtown to visit Shwedagon Pagoda and saw this unique temple on the right side of the main road. It is located along Shwedagon Pagoda Road about 100 meters from the temple. Admission is free.

I think this temple did the right thing by displaying the name of the temple prominently at the entrance. So, visitors knew at one look the temple he or she is visiting.

The compound of the temple is quite small. Birds flew in here and found refuge at the yard. The atmosphere appears serene and peaceful though it was located along the busy road leading to Shwedagon temple.

The visit to Shwedagon Pagoda should also include visits to the following nearby attractions:

(a) Sein Yaung Chi Pagoda - this temple
(b) Maha Wizaya Pagoda - just across the road on the south entrance of Shwedagon
(c) Kandawgyi Park - near the eastern entrance of Shwedagon
(d) People's Park - across the road at the south entrance of Shwedagon
(e) Martyr's Mausoleum - at the north entrance of Shwedagon

It would take you almost the whole day to visit Shwedagon and the nearby attractions.

Was walking along Shwedagon Road to get to the Shwedagon pagoda from downtown yangon, and this was one of the attractions I happened to find along the way. Was a quaint place, and the temple owners were very welcoming, seems like not a lot of tourists would know this place. Loved how there were many birds around and the chirping coupled with the prayers gave the temple a very calming feel. Check out the backyard as well.

Whole glass covered this pagoda is on the way to the center. As less popular effect from west culture as neon signs is limited.
