Very interesting and easily accessible temple that represents unique style of Mrauk U architecture. A must see on your trip to Mrauk U. Very close to sunset spot so called sunset hill. Almost no tourists around.

Would recommend every one to come here but the locals are not the best in maintaining their heritage. Hope they will do more in the future to transfer these ancient relicts into the future.

This pagoda is beautiful not just for the stupas there, but also the surrounding village life (children flying kites, villagers and monks walking by on their daily business, locals chatting around) - gives a nice feel of the more rural side on Myanmar on a...More
