Lunch would follow after a hectic morning. Another visit to another pagoda but this time a Reclining Buddha statue called "ChaukHtatGyii". It is not really that old but the immense size of the statue makes it a worthwhile visit, just to marvel at the workmanship. Note the unique glass eyes that seem to follow you as you circumnavigate the statute. There are also numerous Buddhist monasteries surrounding this pagoda.
