Yanpaymanpay Paya

Buddhist Temple in Falam

This temple with a golden zedi (stupa) and a sitting, white-faced Buddha surrounded by five disciples looms over Falam from almost the highest point above the town. There are sublime views across the countryside from here: on a clear day you can really see for miles and miles. It's a steep 20-minute walk from the centre of town: take the road past Holy Guest House and KBZ Bank and keep walking uphill.
