Shwe Yan Pyay Monastery, Nyaung-Shwe

Visitors can easily access the Shwe Yan PyayMonastery just between Heho Airport and Inle Lake. It is a charming red painted teak monastery, built in the early 19th Century.

The monastery is not decorated with carvings like the royal monasteries and pagodas in Mandalay. It is dedicated for regional poor boys to live. Otherwise, it also provides them an education and meals more than they will have at their home.

The monks live in a dormitory, where each has his own space. Monks, who live here, have meals, take baths and wash their clothes together. The dormitory’s area is a half of the monastery building. The other half is a temple with an ornately carved ceiling and the Buddhas. A walkway around the central sanctuary has a Buddha at each niche.
