Ngar Htat Gyi Pagoda

The Ngar Htat Gyi Pagoda is located on Shwe Gon Taing Road, Tamwe Township, just across the Chauk Htat Kyi Pagoda. Ngar Htat Kyi (or) the five tiered Buddha Image, is a sitting Buddha image, located across the Chauk Hta Kyi Buddha Image.
A huge image of seated Buddha is housed in a pavilion of iron structure with a five-tiered CGI roof. Hence Ngar-Htat-Kyi Pagoda means the pagoda with five-layered roof. The abbot’s monastery in close proximity of the pagoda is of fine Chinese design.
This Buddha image is different from other images in the style of using Magite (armours) around the image.
