Kayin State – Google Map


Hpa-an

'The proof of the pudding is in the eating', as the saying goes. At least, you should pay a visit to Pha-an to enjoy its natural beauties. Pha-an, the capital of Kayin State, lies in a beautiful location amid limestone mountains. Thanlwin River flows close beside the western part of the town. The real highlights of the Pha-an area are all scattered around the rural countryside out of town. Eleven kilometers south of the city is Mt Zwegabin, which is photogenic. The 7th-century artwork of Kawgun Cave consists of thousands of tiny clay Buddha images and carvings plastered all over the walls.

AROUND HPA-AN

Kyauk Ka Latt

Standing proud in the middle of a small lake is Kyauk Ka Latt, a small stupa on a tall finger of sheer rock. The sanctuary is around 10 km west of Hpa-an. The lake is surrounded by rice fields and majestic karst rocks. The monastery complex contains a number of structures and shrines. Half of the golden pagoda on the pointed needle rock is accessible via stairs. At the end of the dry season, the last water masses gather around the rock sanctuary - as the only refuge for fish. Fish can be fed from the small concrete bridge leading to it.

 

Kawgon Cave

The Kawgon cave near the village of the same name, approximately 13 km from Hpa-an, impresses with a 61 m wide and 91 m long cave. It is located on the opposite side of the river, which can be reached via the Thanlwin Bridge in Hpa-an. In addition to numerous seated Buddha images, there are also two reclining ones. The walls and ceilings are adorned with small Buddha images. Last but not least, the more than 10,000 relief Buddhas, which adhere to the ceiling and walls of the rock temple as votive tablets, also leave a fascinating impression.
