Sein Yaung Chi Pagoda

The Sein Yaung Chi Pagoda is one of Myanmar’s more majestic religious temples and is located just a stone’s throw from the world-renowned Shwedagon Pagoda. Also known as the “Diamond Reflections” Pagoda, Sein Yaung Chi is covered in mirrors with jade green interspersed making it a truly blinding sight in the clear skies above Yangon in the dry season. The interior of the pagoda is hollowed out in a rotunda style with Buddha Images of all shapes and sizes.

The peaceful atmosphere of the Pagoda can be attributed to birds chirping away as they make their nests in and around the pagoda. In addition, large trees block road noise and having been built 20-plus yards from the Shwedagon Pagoda Road, peace and quiet is a welcome ambiance. Surrounding the pagoda are Myanmar mythical creatures, more Buddha Images and a house where several monks stay.
