Bawbawgyi Paya and Bebe Paya

Located in the south of the museum, outside the city walls, are cylindrical Bawbawgyi Paya and cube-shaped Bebe Paya. Standing over 45 meters high, the brick and plaster of Bawbawgyi Paya is the oldest stupa in the area. Other cube-shaped pagodas in the area include one thought to have been used by a hermit, featuring eight Buddha reliefs along the lower half of the interior wall and a vaulted ceiling of brick. This site can be accessible by car, only about 6 hours drive from Yangon. There are also express buses carrying passengers everyday.
