Photographer's Note

This giant statue of Buddah can be seen from the boats going between Nyaung Shwe and Inle Lake, so I decided to pay it a visit.

About 2km from the town center, and following a dirt path, Bawrithat Pagoda lies in a very small township called Nanthe and was built in about 1050 by King Anawrahta,

The Buddha image, called Kyauk Phyu Gyi, rests among many small stupas and other buddhist icons, and you can walk around them like in a maze.
