Gautam1Just a short distance away from the city's main tourist attraction, the great Shwedagon pagoda, is the Chauk Htat Gyi pagoda where you can see the third largest reclining Buddha in Myanmar (indeed, the world). This remarkable statue is housed in a large metal-roof shed and is highly revered by the local people, the majority of whom are Buddhists. Although it is not as well known as the fabled Shwedagon, it is fast becoming a tourist draw. I have been there several times, my last visit being two years ago.The very impressive 65 meters/214 feet long image is wearing a golden robe; the right arm of the Buddha is supporting the back of the head. It is decorated with very expressive colors, white face, red lips, blue eye shadow, golden robe and red finger nails. A prominent part of the image are the soles of his feet containing 108 segments in red and gold colors that show symbols representing the 108 'lakshanas' or auspicious characteristics of the Buddha. Its height of 16 meters or 53 feet also makes it more striking.The original image was built in 1907 by a distinguished Burmese gentleman by the name of Hpo Thar (later knighted by the British Crown), but after many decades of neglect and disrepair during the Independence movement and War years, i

TIC_This_is_ChinaThe U Bein bridge is a must-go in Mandalay. It is especially good looking and photo taking during sunset. But be careful that the bridge is not guarded by handrails that I was afraid of falling down all the time. It is worthy to ride on a boat to taking photos.

Ancient Pagoda
Historical Architecture
事事随缘Ananda Temple is known as the most beautiful building in Bagan! The whole temple is square and covers an area of nearly 100 acres. In the center of the courtyard is the Ananda Pagoda. The base of the tower is an Indian-style square big Buddha cave. On the base of the tower stands a tower with a height of more than 70 meters. The tower is light yellow, and there are thousands of large and small Buddha statues on the outer wall. Under the sunlight, it solemnly lowers its head and overlooks all living beings under its feet. Every morning, the locals worship and present flowers with many pilgrims who have traveled far and wide, which is very distinctive. This pagoda was built in the middle of the Bagan dynasty, and its construction technique greatly surpassed the previous pagodas, and it was built with the unique style of Myanmar.

Gautam1Worth a look at this one especially being so central in Yangon. The costs do add up though. Flowers at the door (optional), ticket to get in, tour guides who speak great English will show you around then after 10-15 minutes you will be pressed hard for ‘donations’. These guys don’t work for the pagoda so there’s no obligation you can walk away. If you want to donate there are collection boxes

About Myanmar

Myanmar has recently emerged from years of international isolation. This fantastic Southeast Asian nation is a magnet for travelers fascinated with Burmese culture. Towering golden stupas and Buddhist temples are found throughout the land. The world famous Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangoon is a must-see attraction. Scattered throughout the country’s midsection are ruins from the former Pyu city-states, several of which are recognized as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. In Mandalay, you can visit the famous U Bein Bridge, known to locals as the “lover’s bridge.” With a growing tourism sector and a rich cultural history, Myanmar is a gem of a destination. Tourists who venture here will find it hard not to fall in love.
