Kyaik Pun Pagoda

Kyaik Pun Pagoda is a small Buddhist monastery built in 1479 by Dhammazedi, the king of the Mon Kingdom of Hanthawaddy. It's found near the town of Bago and is known for the towering images of Buddha that is visible from far away.

The images represent the four Buddhas who have reached Nirvana, namely Kassapa Budhha, Kakusandha Buddha, Konogamana Buddha, and Gautama Buddha. They sit back and face four fundamental directions, wearing golden robes and with slightly different expressions. The Kyaik Pun Pagoda is an active place of worship and is highly revered by Burmese Buddhists who come and pay their respect.
