Shwemawdaw Paya

Mon State

Thirty white-faced standing golden buddhas rise up the steep track that leads to this peaceful temple, with its own, smaller version of Mt Kyaiktiyo's famous golden rock and a golden zedi (stupa). Best of all are the stunning views over the surrounding countryside and the Ye River. The temple is at the opposite end of Kyaing Ywar village to the riverfront.
