Chaukhtatgyi Buddha Temple, Yangon Reviews - Write a Review
This Buddha is HUGE. The pictures don't do it justice. There's some other neat things to read around it but really you go just to see a MASSIVE Buddha.
Kyaukhtatgyi Pagoda aka Chauk Htat Gyi Pagoda) is famed for the enormous 65-meter long sleeping Buddha, one of the largest in Myanmar. What impresses me is also the 108 distinguishing marks on both the Buddha's soles of and the explanations in English. It was indeed a good learning experience.
Amazing. Just go and see it. After you get to the top of the stairs and look at the statue, you HAVE to be awed. I'm afraid I may have sworn when I saw the size of the statue. just amazing.
Very peaceful! Great to experience Buddha in a reclining pose. No entrance fees. Not very crowded either.
Really beautiful to go see but don't spend too much time. Reminded me of the reclining Buddha in Bangkok. Definitely worth a visit
