Botataung Pagoda, Yangon Reviews - Write a Review
One of the most famous historic pagoda in Myanmar with great ancient architecture can be seen. Shine in day and bright in night as different nice views. A good place to develop concentration, esp in early morning and at night, basing on pure morality. This is also a nice place to focus on the recollection of The Buddha such as total free from defilements and teaching pupils to free from defilements, to get powerful concentration. After homage to The Buddha, we can do walking exercise near the pagoda along the river bank.
Actually, this pagoda is re-build and original ancient pagoda is damaged by boom when word war II. Historic ancient pagoda and it is build same year as Great Shwe Dagon Pagoda. New river side with quiet place is good for meditation. Also have most famous Buddha Image which is come back from Great Britain.
Interesting temple. 6000kyat pp. You can see in the influence from Indian buddisum. Funny to see the attractions for donations. Unfortunately the turtle ponds were grotty and being cleaned out while we were here.
Botahtaung pagoda is one of the symbolic pagoda to visit. Crowded with locals and foreigners especially Thai people. Many Thai are visiting the Bo Bo Gyi’s shrine for good luck. Entrance fee 6000 kyats per pax. Ladies has to cover up their legs with pants or cloth.
