Bodhi-ta-taung Pagoda Sagaing Region Pagodas & Monuments | 0 comments

What one notices when arriving at Bodhi-ta-taung (or One Thousand Bo Trees) is not the trees, but the gleaming Buddha statues that rise above them.
Bodhi-ta-taung Pagoda

The tallest figure is a golden standing Buddha that reaches 140 meters into the sky. It is flanked by equally impressive statues in both the sitting and reclining configurations. And that's just what is visible above the tree line.

The pagoda complex itself features terraces of Buddha statues in seated contemplation, while the adjoining pond adds a level of tranquility that the silent figures would no doubt approve of. The giant statues are said to the largest of their kind, and while that may be difficult to verify (Bago also claims to house the world's largest reclining Buddha), they certainly are very impressive in their own right.

Given the flat characteristics of the site, a sunny day can soon turn hot, so hats, water and generous applications of sunscreen are recommended if you are heading out in clear weather. Getting to Bodhi-ta-taung is easiest by road from the trade town of Monywa, which is about two hours to the northwest of Mandalay.
