Not only does this place house a large sitting Buddha statue donning royal regalia, it also depicts realistic images of the karmic cycle including a scene showing how hell would look like.

This buddha is big! Really loved the wooden back drop which is very detailed. Location is a bit far away from it all but you can combine it with the reclining buddha accross the street.

We gave this place a short visit after seeing the Reclining Buddha. There's a massive Buddha on the inside that's worth a look. We spent about 30 minutes here and that was about enough.

This is such a nice place to visit. If you are in Yangon I really recommend it. Its free of charge and it is right next to Chaukhtatgyi Buddha.
