Two things are noticed, the water level never rises to cover the pagoda, and there will always be enough room for everyone who come to visit the pagoda (meaning, even the pagoda has small room for visitors somehow it is always balanced out between those who is coming & leaving).
It is approximately 20 kilometres (12 mi) south of Yangon. This unusual temple was built under King Bawgasena in the third century BCE. The temple hosts an impressive collection of paintings, sculptures and other fine demonstrations of Burmese Buddhist artwork and craftsmanship.
Midstream Kyauktan Pagoda reviews
Just 1.5 hour drive away from Yangon , it is interesting to pay a visit to Historical temple. Even though you have to cross the small part of river, it is quite safe. You can hire small boat with... more »
Worth a quick visit as part of seeing the Kyauk Tan Pagoda. Nothing materially stood out as different from this pagoda but might as well visit it while in the area. more »
This place is beautiful and the boat ride is lovely too. I would have given it 5 stars but the local people hassle you shove things at you and insist you buy them, I did not experience anything like this in Yangon so it really shocked me. It was so hot when I went so I was frazzled and could not handle the aggressive sales techniques. You can feed the fish and see many Buddha statues. It really is an amazing experience and if you are a westerner, you may find people are more interested in you than the pagodas!
