Chaukhtatgyi Buddha Temple - Review
Located in Bahan Township in Yangon, the Chaukhtatgyi Buddha temple is a beautiful temple devoting to the revered reclining images of Buddha. The Buddha image kept here is 66 metres (217 ft) long, and is one of the largest in Burma. The construction of this temple was carried out by a rich Burmese Buddhist, Sir Po Tha, in 1899. The Reclining Buddha image is defined here with very expressive colors, white face, red lips, blue eye shadow, golden robe and red finger nails. Consecrated in 1973, this image looks serene and calm and thus attracts a lot of devotees due to its sublimity.

Chaukhtatgyi Buddha Temple, Yangon Reviews
Under construction during this period Jun-2018. It’s a giant Buddha lying there absolutely bigger than Buddha in Thailand. Do acknowledge that there will be “one local tour guide “ that he would led you to show you around the temple that he is the owner of that Mental School. He will ask for donation for his uncles and the school and himself. He is actually nice but just ask for donation and he love to share information with you.
What an amazing Reclining Buddha... Unfortunately it is having restoration work done to it so will be amazing when its completed in a few months. Some other great Buddha's to see and well worth the trip to it when you are in Yangon
It’s a must to see while you are in Yangon. It’s beautiful and the reclining Buddha inside the temple really deserves a visit! It’s not crowded and try to dress modestly. Cover your shoulders and legs! Try to respect this sacred place and enjoy the beautiful feet with many meanings and stroll around and be amazed by different Buddha hands posing!
Here is another classic example of people rating a place based on what Lonely Planet recommends. You'll read about this place in every guidebook as a large reclining Buddha statue; and every review will say you "have" to see it. I'm going to keep it real and say "no, you absolutely do not" have to see it. Is it big? Yes. Are the designs on the feet interesting? Somewhat. Is it still just a big androgynous statue of someone laying (lying?) down? Absolutely.
Really beautiful to go see but don't spend too much time. Reminded me of the reclining Buddha in Bangkok. Definitely worth a visit. We spent around half an hour walking around here. You’ll be asked to walk around barefoot as a sign of respect. So if you’re OCD or afraid to walk barefoot, perhaps not the place for you. But you can hold your shoes in your hand as you walk around. Try not to speak too loudly as people are praying and thus, soak in the culture and history as you walk around.
