Beautiful pagoda, the largest landmark of Naypyidaw. - Summary of the Uppatasanti Pagoda, Naypyidaw, Myanmar
Since we were in Naypyidaw for a very brief stopover, we had the opportunity to go to this nice pagoda at sunset, after supper, when our guest told us that it is open until 9 pm. Although it rained, we had a nice attendance in this nice pagoda.
It is also known as the "Peace Pagoda" and is a striking symbol of Naypyidaw. It is a Buddha-reliquary from China and is a copy of the Shwedagon-pagoda in Yangon and is 100 meters high. There has also Maha Hsutaungpyae Buddha picture in Maha Pasadabhumi Gandhakuti room, four Buddha pictures in the pagoda cavern, 33 meter high flag pole, Bo garden with Maha Bo garden and the pictures of 28 Buddhas, Marlini Mangala lake with the room of Shin Uppagutta and Pagoda MUSE.
The pagoda has beautiful wall paintings in sculptured rock that depict the Buddha's way of living and legends and key sequences from Myanmar's Buddhist past. Walking around was a wonderful adventure. The pagoda was open for taking pictures. There'?s plenty of time for a quick stop. Not many tourists go to Naypyidaw, so you might be the only one who is actually Caucasian, the pagoda is located on a great plateau from which you can see the town.
When I came from Yangon, I wanted to see the pagoda, which looks like Shwe Dagon. This pagoda is only separated from the town and so quietly situated. Were you in the Uppatasanti Pagoda?
Various types of pagodas - Review of Thatta Thattaha Maha Bawdi Pagoda, Naypyidaw, Myanmar
The pagoda is a must, it is different from the gold pagodas and you can also see the holy Buddha Sea in the same area. It is the only place to go when visiting Nay Pyi Taw, because it is a nice and clearly very good copy of Budda Gaya in Nay Pyi Taw.
The pagoda is known among the locals as Nay Pyi Taw's Buddha Gaya (Buddha Gaya is in India). A copy of the Maha Bawdi Pagoda in India (Maha Bayan Treee). This is a true reproduction of the Maha Bodhi sanctuary in India, where Buddha reached epiphany. There are also the seven important sections or marks of Buddha immediately after his illumination.
The April weather was warm, so try to see the tranquil pagoda early in the mornings. Were you at the Thattaha Thattaha Maha Bawdi Pagoda?
