We gave this place a short visit after seeing the Reclining Buddha. There's a massive Buddha on the inside that's worth a look. We spent about 30 minutes here and that was about enough.

One of the highlights of the trip, peaceful to sit and meditate for a few minutes before going on your way in busy Yangon.
