Attractive, historic church that dates back to the colonial era and famously had the same priest for 69 years.
South of central Kalaw, this natural cave is home to dozens of gold Buddha statues.
Kalaw's market is worth a browse – several stalls sell dried fruit and local liqueurs. Every five days, the market is swelled by traders who descend from the hill villages outside town.
Kalaw has a sizeable Muslim population and this is their main mosque.
Right in the centre of Kalaw, Aung Chan Tha Zedi is a glittery stupa, covered in gold- and silver-coloured glass mosaics.
South of Kalaw market, the myriad stupas of Hsu Taung Pye Paya were restored from ruins using donations from visiting pilgrims.
For a good view over Kalaw's market and centre, take the steps on the north side of Union Hwy (NH4) to this modest Buddhist monastery with a small congregation of friendly monks.
This temple is home to a 500-year-old, gold-lacquered bamboo Buddha.
