Myanmar is full of religious places and Buddhist temples as far as the eye can see. Here, we have a few of the most popular temples for you.
Kyaiktiyo Pagoda, Myanmar
If you are in Myanmar and are planning a trip to Kyaiktiyo Pagoda, don’t let pass on taking a look at the Golden Rock. The rise up the mountain can be done in a vehicle and when going up, it might look like an almost 90-degree vertical climb, but the view from the top is worth any discomfort you might feel. People go up the mountain to either sightsee or for pilgrimage, and whichever the reason, the mood at the top of the mountain is delightful, with the most chilled vibes.
This Buddhist temple in Nyaung U is a large affair that consists of a mesmerising stupa. If you are planning on visiting this religious site, time it so that you reach at dusk as the whole place is lit up then.
Golden and standing tall like a mighty beacon on the hill of Singuttra, this temple is a must visit, especially if you love photographing amazing architecture. Any hotel in Yangon can direct you to this temple, and if you are put up at Sedona Hotels Yangon, for instance, the temple is only a twenty-minute drive away.
Located in Mandalay, this auspicious temple is a colourful building that consists of gold, kumkum red, and pearl white walls.
