Large monastry with 5-sides instead of the usual 7-sides. Inside is a huge open space but the outside is dirty & grubby. If ur too tired to climb up the steps there's a short-cut stairs behind the kiosk. The off-putting thing was the Dogs, I was followed down the steps by a gang of them.

A beautiful former Buddhist Monastery formerly known as Mahā Atulaveyan Kyaung-daw-gyi which, surprisingly, served as a British troop barracks. It burned down as an almost total loss in 1890 but was rebuilt by the government in the mid-1990s. Thus the reason for being in such excellent repair. Consists of two levels both of which are huge Halls with the upper... More

There isn't much to do once you're inside really. This place is right behind Shwenandaw Monastery and it's a good place to avoid the heat for a short while.

This monastery is accross the street from Shwenandaw Pagoda. It's a nice thing to see but it is a huge and almost empty hall. It was very dusty inside.

It was near Shwenandaw monastery. Visit is allowed with combo ticket. May be it looks ordinary near the old monastry

The monastry has a very grand entrance and that sets the scene for an impressive insight into monastic life and devotion

This is an impressive monastery hall and it is a quick 10 minute visit next to the impressive Shwe Nandaw Kyaung monestary. Good photo opportunity outside on the side near the huge golden doors.

This was very close to the Teak Temple so we popped by a little. A few nice spots at the entrance for photos!

This place is pretty huge. The inside has a big hall that houses a small buddha. The hall could fit a few thousand people easy.

Just 30 minutes is enough for this monastery. Nothing attracting my interesting except taking some pictures at the front door. The monastery doesn't look well-cared for and the floor is very dirty. The hall looks empty, maybe there's a buddha statue and nothing else.
