We arrived here on a horse and buggy ride. I was concerned for th skinny horse but the owner assured me he loved his horse, they generally live to 25 years.we didn't see any monks.....maybe they've left because of the state ot the temple.

This monastery is of wood, so not the usual you would see in Myanmar, It is still quite beautiful. The main attraction here are the monks, of all ages, who line up for their lunch and therefore lots of tourists taking photos.

It was the destination of our horse and buggy ride and was interesting to see but not especially great. Perhaps there is a limit to the number of temples, monasteries and stupas one can take in over a few days!

The monastery was made from wood craving which was very impressed. However no details or brief description to read and understand more about the place. We went in as our first stop for the day.

Watching over 1200 monks of all ages line up for lunch is a strange situation but that is the main attraction here. None of them seem to take much notice of the photo flashing tourists.

This monastery with its intrinsic exquisite carvings is a must see. The entire pagoda is made of teak wood and is a quiet place for a quick visit. No crowds and no entry fee.
