Bago is a town south of Yangon which was founded most likely in the 6th Century. Bago has had a turbulent history, including the near complete destruction of the town at the end of the 16th Century, and has played an important past in the formative history of Myanmar. Bago has plenty of places of interest to visit and is one of the most popular tourist areas in the country.
Amongst the places we recommend visiting in Bago are:
- Kanbawzathadi Palace: The Kanbawzathadi Palace was originally built in 1553 as the palace of the Dynastic rulers of Myanmar. Following the collapse of the Taungoo dynasty in the late 16th Century the original palace, made most of wood, burned down in 1599. The palace has been partially reconstructed and is now the main tourist attraction in Bago.
- Mya Tha Lyaung Reclining Buddha: This 55 metre long reclining Buddha statue dating back to the end of the 10th Century is believed to be the second largest reclining Buddha statue is the world.
- Shwe mawdaw Pagoda: Site of a 114.3 metre tall pagoda, which is 15 metres taller than the Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon.
- Kyaik Pun Pagoda: Temple with a 27 metre tall statue depicting the Lord Buddha seated in 4 different positions.
- Mahazedi Pagoda: Interesting 16th Century temple built to host a tooth from the funeral pyre of the Lord Buddha.
