The four gigantic buddha statues look very impressive. Legend has it that four sisters involved in building the statues made a pact not to marry but one of them did, resulting in the damage in one of the four statues. However, it has been restored so you cannot see any damage now.

Quite a small wat but well worth a visit, not far from the ancient Mon capital of Bago. There are a few small additional shrines in the temple complex and other objects of interest but easily the most important item here is the 27 metre high statues of 4 seated Buddhas, all sitting back to back. A 4 seated Buddha temple is fairly unusual, particularly of this size. They all looked well maintained and indeed one of the Buddhas had scaffolding around it where they were clearly carrying out a number of repairs plus repainting work. I believe the statues are originally 15th Century.
There are also a few handicraft stalls in the short walkway up from the parking area to the temple complex - one of the stalls had a very persistent but very sharp and intelligent teenage lady who, if I was still in business, I would appoint straight-away to any marketing or sales position, very bright!

The most spectacular thing in this pagoda are the four statues of buddha sitting back to back and the garden around is beautiful. Just don’t miss this temple in Bago.

This site is a bit farther than Shwemawdaw and Kanbawzathadi Palace. For myself (and for other travelers who'd like to see this, the best way is to just take a motorbike and cost me 5000 Kyat.
* Also, I wanted to note that although I checked this review as "having a fee attraction", if you bought the special $10 pass at Shwemawdaw Pagoda, you may use it here as well. Basically, they've set up a system in which once you pay that one time $10 fee, you DON'T have to pay it again. From there on, one may visit ALL the other main sites in Bago for free as long as you show the people at the entrances that pass.
There is still a $3 camera fee though that must be paid.

Myanmar Pagodas are always well maintained and beautiful. It wasn't crowded and a peaceful place of worship.
