The beautiful Kyauktawgyi Pagoda in Amarapura (also called Maha Sakka Ramsi Pagoda or locally Taungthaman Kyauktawgyi) was built in 1847 and is a large white pagoda topped with a golden spire located on the Eastern edge of Taungthaman Lake just past the end of the U Bein Bridge.
To get to the Kyauktawgyi Pagoda in Amarapura, from the eastern end of the U-Bein Bridge travel roughly 250m up the street as it curves to your left. You will find the large white and gold gateway to enter the Pagoda grounds. About 50m past the main gate you will come to the ancient wall that surrounds the pagoda. A further 50m inside the wall will bring you to the Kyauktawgyi Pagoda itself.
The pagoda is built in a square shape with four large hallways running from the center North, South, East & West.
The outside of the pagoda is beautifully photogenic and the inside houses some remarkable treasures.
Seated at the centre of the pagoda you have a lovely marble statue of Buddha. From there go down the four hallways to see a whole array of amazing ancient murals painted on the walls and ceilings that are still in great condition.
The murals depict many building from a bygone era that were located around the countryside along with details of ancient Burmese astrology and terrific scenes depicting the daily life of the locals.
