This Pagoda is actually my favorite Pagoda in Yangon. It has a different style of architecture compared to the other pagoda. Although it is located a bit far from downtown Yangon, it is worth to pay a visit since you will see a different style of neighborhood. It will need 15 mins walking from the nearby train station. It is... More

in 1952, this pagoda and mahapasana cave was built in preparation for the 6th buddhist council. The sasana university and HQ of state sangha council are situated here. There are many buddha statues in this pagoda and in the center of the pagoda lies the relics of buddha and his 2 chief disciples. A must see!! You can explore around... More

This pagoda is also known as the world peace pagoda. It's a little out of the city centre you may flag a taxi (around usd$5) or you may try the local train and get off at the yaegu station and do a bit of walking from there. The maha pasada cave is right next to this pagoda and you may... More

This 20th century pagoda was notable to me primarily because it is so different. There are many pictorial representations of the buddhas. I was glad we visited but would skip this if you are short on time.

This venue is well worth a visit as it presents a different view of the Burmese/Buddhist culture. The beautiful works of art can be gazed upon for quite some time as they change in colour as the light changes.

Not as impressive as the main pagoda, but still worth visiting. I did it early morning but beware they open at 8 am

Silence. Absolute Silence. A abode of peace. Beautiful gardens all around. I had visited the Pagoda as a kid. There was greenery all around. Now civilisation had taken its toll - the Pagoda is surrounded by high rises. In spite of that it has retained its identity - World Peace Pagoda. One can feel it when one visits this place.... More

You can spend you time here if you have free time to finish, it's just another medium size pagoda. Entry fees 3000kyat
