During my visit to Myanmar in 2015 after the famous Bagan, we journeyed by train to Kalaw. A beautifully cool hill station town, with it’s own cool caves at Shwe Oo Min Paya.
The cave system here is full of many golden Buddha’s, mostly donated by visiting pilgrims from all over the world, and there are some 8,700 of them festooning the cave interiors according to Lonely Planet’s 2011 Guide to Myanmar, (The oldest date back about 275 years.)
It’s an extensive complex, with small meditation caves still used by monks, and there are stalactites with water dripping away which add to the atmosphere. A splendid 40′ sitting Buddha was found in another cave pavilion reached by a covered walkway. A real highlight of any visit to Burma.
