Vanessa Ball's experience in Yangon
Chauk Htat Kyi Pagoda
You are faced with a ginormous 65 metre long reclining Buddha as soon as you enter the large metal-roofed shed, The Chaukhtatgyi Paya is a splendid display with golden robes, glass eyes, the crown is encrusted with diamonds and other precious stones. Don’t forget to take a loop to see the bottom of the feet which are decorated with more than 100 lakshanas, depictions of Buddha’s physical and spiritual characteristics. #pagoda #buddhisttemple #yangon
