Yangon Sightseeing » Destinations » Kyauk Gu U Min

Kyauk Gu U Min temple was also constructed on the bank of Irrawaddy River with the lower section made of stone bricks and the two upper stories made of earth bricks. There was a stunning path of 500 feet long with many twists and turns, tunnels and cellars was dug into the stone wall.

In the north side of temple are niches where you can see sculptures of eight important events of the Buddha’s life.

In the main hall was the large Buddha image with relief figures of the Buddha’s two disciples on the both sides of the image. On each side of it was two Arahats in relief on the ceiling.

The notable feature of the structure is that the vaulted hall of the first storey is equipped with light wells. These light wells help light pass through from the light wells in the roof of the second storey down to the light wells of the first one as the sun reaches noon. There is a small zedi on the north side of the entrance hall.
