Mitta Oo Pagoda

Though information is quite sparse on the Mitta Oo Pagoda, it is a must-see when in the North Okkalapa Township of Yangon, Myanmar. The Mitta Oo compound contains one large pagoda with dozens of smaller stupas all around it. A large moat is situated in the front of the pagoda with a stupa in the middle and a narrow walkway leading towards it. A seated Buddha Image has been placed in the middle of the structure.

Several dozen Buddha Images are located all around the roughly 50×50 yard (meters) large area in all shapes and sizes. Buddha images in different poses are located underneath each smaller stupa while several Buddha images sit serenely underneath giant snake/dragon statues in each of the four corners of the compound. Upon arrival at the pagoda, you will see a large lake with a walkway towards a shrine located in the middle of it. The murky water contains many fish and you can feed them with any extra bread you may have on you. A broken-down Ferris wheel is located off to the right of the pagoda reminiscent of times long past in which the pagoda was kept in better repair.

In one corner of the pagoda, you will you can see a globe with a golden Myanmar jutting out of it along with several smaller nagar (dragons) and crocodiles and various other mythical creatures. All around the pagoda are dirt fields which children use to play chinlone (local Myanmar foot-volley), football (soccer for you Americans) and various other games. Card games are frequent and it’s a great place for kids to use some of their extra energy.
