Popularly known as Snake Pagoda, this is ideal for a day trip from Yangon. Set in the middle of a lake, the wooden walkway that leads you to the Pagoda gives you a slight idea of the quirky experience that lies ahead.

Although the interior of the place is pretty mundane with back to back Buddha statues and a lime green wall, the Pagoda’s most treasured possession are the snakes are found twined over the window grills!

These reptiles are considered to be extremely holy and are nurtured by the nuns who live near the Pagoda.
