Chaukhtatgyi Paya (Chauk Htat Gyi Buddha) Tours

20 reviews
Chaukhtatgyi Paya, with its 65-meter-long reclining Buddha, is not only a must-see, its sheer size and rich details make it one of the most memorable stops in all of Yangon. The Buddha’s bright white face hovers some 16 meters above the ground and is decorated with brilliant red lips and bright blue eye shadow. Its golden robes drape down to the statue’s feet, which are covered in 108 intricately designed lakshanas representing each of the noble characteristics of the Buddha. Travelers can witness local monks from nearby monasteries honoring Buddha’s teachings as they wander the grounds, thick with the scent of burning incense and fresh flowers.

Practical Info

The Buddha is housed in a structure on Shwe Gon Taing Street, just north of Kandawgyi Lake in the Tamwe township of Yangon. It is open from 6 a.m. until 8 p.m. and entry costs about US$5 per person.
