This is an impressive monastery hall and it is a quick 10 minute visit next to the impressive Shwe Nandaw Kyaung monestary. Good photo opportunity outside on the side near the huge golden doors.

This was very close to the Teak Temple so we popped by a little. A few nice spots at the entrance for photos!

This place is pretty huge. The inside has a big hall that houses a small buddha. The hall could fit a few thousand people easy.

Just 30 minutes is enough for this monastery. Nothing attracting my interesting except taking some pictures at the front door. The monastery doesn't look well-cared for and the floor is very dirty. The hall looks empty, maybe there's a buddha statue and nothing else.

I was fortunate enough to coincidentally drop by during a ceremony. I have no idea what kind of ceremony it was, but it was very nice. Lots of monks chanting, walking around in a specific pattern, some drums, then some water being poured down the side steps. I felt fortunate to be able to observe this part of their culture... More

Completely rebuilt. Unusual style. It's nice but not up to the other sights around it. I would skip it and go up the Hill if I had to make a choice

Very white monastery, really nice and peaceful though to walk around and it is located near the other main pagodas so worth the little detour to visit.

worth a short visit id you are nearby. It was rebuilt according to the original plans in 1996. It does not come close to recreating the magnificence of the original building but looks quite impressive and different from the other monasteries and temples.
