Few people around if you go during the day midweek. Nice views of the Yangon skyline in the distance. An impressive pagoda though not as large as Shwedagon. If you're out in the Thanlyin area, be sure to pass by.

It's a nice pagoda that resembles the Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon. It was very quiet when we went there, barely any locals paying respect. It also has a good viewdeck and in clear days, you can see the Shwedagon Pagoda and the Yangon Skyline. It was cloudy when we were there so there was nothing else really to see. Ok... More

We visited there last year december and very nice place. We can see different small pagodas and golden Buddha images. It take about 40 minute drive by Car from Yangon. You can get there by Taxi (or) private Car.

This pagoda is located on the small Island in the middle of the river where larger amounts of big fish are felt by the Pilgrims with Popcorn or Bread. What an opportunity to see the countryside around Yangon!

This is the largest Pagoda in Thanlyin township, which is just about one hour drive from Central Yangon, importance of visiting Pagoda is not only to take pics but to learn the legend behind the Pagoda

A lovely, glittering & beautiful temple like most temples in Myanmar. Take a Guide or Guidebook to learn the real history of this temple.. Be appropriately dressed as a mark of respect to Buddhism, even if its a hot day.
