Nothing very special, it's quite small. We spent barely 5 minutes inside. We expected it to be bigger and impressive.

A short drive out of town that small cave / temple boasts excellent stucco wall relief carvings. Foreigners are required to make a reasonable MMK4,000 donation. Combine an evening visit (much quieter) with dinner at nearby Thai Village Restaurant.

This cave is very historic, and the old murals and carvings are interesting. More expensive admission than Sadan Cave, although smaller and not kept up nearly as well (i.e. lots of litter).

The Lord Buddha satues deep inside the caves really amazes anyone visiting. Very cool and serene. A good place to meditate.
