GO during the sunset and look towards the nearby big pagoda. Its a mesmerizing sunset. In terms of the pagoda, there is nothing special and it is more local oriented.

Of all the pagodas we visited, we did not like this one. It is a bit old and dirty. Nothing outstanding. Skip this.

We visited on a Monday and the place was deserted, no evidence of nats or anything going on. Whilst the site itself doesn't stand out as being spectacular, you can get a good view over the surrounding area and the adjacent Shewmawdaw Pagoda
