Today, I have a Trip to Japan Pagoda (Aung Zabu Tawya Temple) regarded as a Great Buddha heritage.
Aung Zabu Tawya Temple is a new pagoda made by the Japanese people by donating Buddha statues so people of Myanmar call this temple “Japan Pagoda”.
Like a representation of the friendship between Japan and Myanmar .. Unlike the old pagodas, you can have a surprisingly fun time.

Japan Pagoda (Aung Zabu Tawya Temple)
Temple It is built on 30 acres and is visited by about 10,000 people a week.
Amazing collection of artifacts and antiquities of Buddha because they appear so real and life like.
These 301 Buddha images were created by ancient peoples and guarded by great powerful sakka and deities.
This tradition continues still today with pilgrims coming from different parts of Myanmar to behold and pray to the Great Buddha images.
To enable more people to enjoy the Japan Pagoda comfortably today, there is a one by one standing up system in place when viewing the Buddha images.
The temple is truly a must-see tourist destination in Yangon. So serene, so awesome and so breathtakingly beautiful.
It is a great place to take photographs and highly recommended trip!
