Ngahtatgyi Paya 5-storey sitting Buddha
We walked across the street from Chaukhtatgyi Pagoda to Ngahtatgyi Paya. This temple houses an impressive seated Buddha image.
It could be the most elaborate and beautiful status in the country. Take a closer look at the semi-precious stones and gems on the statue.
The roof and backdrop were made out of beautifully carved wood.
Entrance fee is USD2 per pax, with a small bottle of free mineral water.
The hall was dim and lit by natural light. It gave a serene feel to the ambience.
We choose to walk up the stairway although you could hire a car to drop off at the small hill top. It was only a 5 minutes walk up the staircases.
You could see few interesting buildings on the right.
30 minutes should be sufficient to complete a short visit to Ngahtatgyi Paya.
