Chaukhtatgyi Buddha Temple, Yangon Reviews
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.
Big Buddha, we visited in the late afternoon and there were no tourists, just locals and some dogs. There was a guy inside that insisted on us meeting with his uncle to get a blessing in exchange for a donation, we skipped it. We spent less than 10'.
Yes, a good place to visit when in Yangon. It houses one of the largest reclining buddha statue in Myanmar. 🙏
Interesting place. Gigantic Buddah. Real peaceful. No aircon, so just be prepred.
Even more than the laying Buddha I enjoyed the wall paintings in this place.
