The Chauk Htat Gyi Pagoda is famous for its huge reclining Buddha, built in 1966 replacing the old image built in 1907 by Sir Hpo Thar which suffered damage due to climate over the years. The reclining Buddha measures 65 meters in length. Monasteries in the vicinity of the pagoda accommodate over six hundred monks who study Buddhist Scriptures from senior and qualified monks. The entire cost of maintenance comes from donations.
Just across the street from the Chauk Htat Gyi Pagoda is another temple, the Ngar Htat Gyi Pagoda that contains another huge Buddha image, a seated one.
