Nga Phe Kyaung Monastery

4.2/5
52 Reviews
Temple
Recommended Sightseeing Time: 1 hour
Address: Taunggyi, Myanmar

What people are saying:

A scenic spot near Inle Lake, it is said that the temple is actually a monastery. There are many cats in it. It was first named because the cats jumped in circles. Now the cats can't jump anymore, they are very lazy on the ground.

    Exquisite carvings

    Interesting designs, friendly cats

    A popular spot for tourists - definitely because of the cats that roam very calmly around the monastery, tolerating pats from tourists, and sometimes climbing into one's lap. The monastery also houses...
