The Reclining Buddha
(Corner of Shwegondaing Roadand Phaung Daw Oo Street, Bahan
The Chauk Htat Gyi Pagoda, home to a 65-metre long reclining
Buddha image, is for some reason less visited among foreigners than the throngs
of local tourists. But the century-old teak monastery is worth a quick stop on
your way to the Shwedagon Pagoda. As for the reclining Buddha itself: Let’s
just say it’s bigger than you expect.
