Thein Thaung Paya

Thein Thaung Paya, Kalaw 2018

For breathtaking views of Kalaw and the surrounding area, Thein Taung Monastery, founded in the 20th century by the monk U Kethera, is the best place.

Inside the monastery are five Buddha images that can be seen in a shrine with a golden mirror in the Dhamma hall. Furthermore, there is an inner ring of paintings depicting the episodes in Buddha’s life. The left shrine shows Shan-style Buddha images, while the right side contains important and remaining artifacts from the history of the monastery, compiled by former Sadayaws or the first monks.
