I visited this little pagoda because my guide recommended it. It is from the 13th century and contains interstate Buddha statues. Many locals visited this place for their prayers. It is an quite oasis in the middle of this noisy city.

The often photographed long line of Buddhas here is an impressive site but for me the views from the top of the site are just as good. When we were there it was all very quiet so a shady place to sit and take in...More

Beautiful pagoda with a very long, curved row of beautiful Buddhas. Rather modern complex, nice view. Well worth a visit.
