Po Win Taung is a Buddhist cave complex located approximately 25 kilometers west of Monywa. It is located on the western bank of the Chindwin River. The name of the complex means Mountain of Isolated Solitary Meditation.

The complex contains 947 small and large richly decorated caves. It is carved into a sandstone outcrop and contains numerous carved Buddha statues and mural paintings of geometric patterns and Jataka stories. The statues and paintings have been dated to between the 14th and 18th centuries

    Gracias, the earliest inscription as found by a scholar was dated 1549, seen on the earlobe of a reclining image. However, many of the images have been painted over so the inscription is now lost; the fervour of devotion of the disciple means that it is unacceptable to have a place of worship or an icon of Buddhism to be left in a decayed state.
