The Kabar Aye Pagoda and the adjoining Maha Pasana Guha cave were built in 1952 by U Nu, the prime minister of Burma to host the 6th Buddhist council. The cave is 455 feet long and 370 feet wide. Inside, the assembly hall is 220 feet.

Pindaya CavesPindaya Caves, Myanmar (Burma)

The Pindaya Caves are not so much a natural wonder as an intriguing pilgrimage site, where you can see thousands of Buddhist statues that have accumulated since the spot first became a place of worship sometime in the 18th century. There is a pair of sweating Buddha images. For some reason, moisture only appears on these two statues, making them especially popular with pilgrims, who compete with each other for a chance to wipe away the “perspiration” that constantly covers them.

Powin TaungPowin Taung, Myanmar (Burma)

The Caves of Po Win Taung, numbering more than one hundred, is full of Buddhist statues and murals. Most exhibit the Innwa style but some may date from the 14th century. Nearby, visit Shwe Ba Taung, which features unique pavilions cut from the surrounding sandstone and filled with Buddha images. It was one of the famous places in this area and a lot of peoples visits to this place every day.
