Reclining Buddah in Chaukhtatgyi Para Yangon #Burm Housed in a large metal-roofed shed, this beautiful 65m-long reclining Buddha is hardly publicised at all even though it's larger than a similar well-known image in Bago. The statue's placid face is topped by a crown encrusted with diamonds and other precious stones. Close to the Buddha’s feet is the small shrine to Ma Thay, a holy man who has the power to stop rain and grant sailors a safe journey.
