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 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.
