The temple is not very pretty and this is just one of thousand reclined buddhas that you will see, and it is a strange one (seems to be wearing makeup). There are much nicer places to visit in Myanmar!

It is one of the famous Pagodas in Myanmar. It is known for its enormous 65 meters Long Reclining Buddha Image. A nice place to know a part of Buddha Life.

Very ornate Temple from the outside with a BIG Reclining Buddha on the inside. One of the biggest I have seen. A little out of the way but worth the trip.

It was interesting to learn more about the culture in Yangon. The large reclined buddha was very pretty. This was nice to see but a little touristy.

Impressive big lying down Buddha. Have a look at his eyes and the eye lashes. It is surrounded by a monestry. Worth a walk around . Take around 30 minutes We loved it
