Laykyun Setkyar Standing Buddha, Monywa #2

This is inside the standing statue. During the time, the lift was still under construction. I had to visit each floor using stair case so I only managed to reach 6 to 7 floors. Each floor has its own exhibition of Buddha statues and Paintings. The interior looks very new and grand. 

How amazing? They just used Bamboo scaffolding to build this giant statue. Can you see worker in the photo?

Laykyun Setkyar Standing Buddha, Monywa #1

The name of this standing Buddha is called Laykyun Setkyar. It located near Monywa town which is about  3 hours drive from Mandalay. As it is very huge and tall, it can be seen from very far distance. At that time I went there, the lift inside the Buddha body was still under construction. So I had to go to each floor by using staircase. I only went up about 6 to 7 floors. Basically, all levels are populated with different kinds of Buddha statues and paintings
