Chauk Htat Gyi Pagoda

The colossal Reclining Budda is what makes foreigners coming to Yangon visit the 6-story Chauk Htat Gyi Pagoda. The way of placing Buddhistic worship images inside multi-story qualifiers is known to be an indigenous development beginning during the second Innwa period.

Started the construction in 1899, the Pagoda was built entirely by donation of the people. In 1907, the original image was completed; however, it suffered damages throughout the years due to climate. In 1957, it was demolished and rebuilt to nowadays complete structure in 1966.

The Buddha image is measured 70 meters in length and 16 meters in height half reclining on his royal couch, with one hand propping up his upper torso.

Chauk Htat Gyi Pagoda is located in Shwe Gon Taing Road, Tamwe Township, Yangon, about 3 kilometers North East of the Shwedagon Pagoda.

It should cost you around USD 3-5 for a taxi from downtown Yangon to the pagoda.

Opening time is 6am – 8pm daily, and the entrance fee is $5/person, which is used for upkeeping the pagoda and education of the local monks.
