If you are fond of Buddha figures and the peace they transmit, you must go on a trip with us at the Asia Gardens Hotel & Thai Spa, to Monywa, Indonesia, where one of the largest pagodas in Asia has more than 600,000 figures of Buddha.
The Thanboddhay Pagoda , is a group of Buddhist temples that reminds us of Borobudur in Indonesia. It was built in 1303 and later rebuilt in 1939, and on the outside and inside it has images of Siddhārtha Gautama.
This pagoda is the main tourist attraction in Monywa. Its main stupa has 582,363 images of Buddha in different sizes lined up, on several levels going up, with niches on both sides of the exterior and interior walls. It paid tribute to the 512,028 Buddhas that reached enlightment during the birth of Gautama Buda in the Samsara cycle.
The architecture of the Thanboddhay Pagoda is very broad and has many pavilions, resting homes and a large pool where fish and turtles swim freely. The entrance is guarded by huge white elephants with inlaid diamonds.
This is without a doubt a place you must visit, a place in which the luxury of its sculptures and pieces amaze all visitors of the pagoda. Our luxury resort, Asia Gardens Hotel & Thai Spa, is equally amazing. We will not only impress you, but here you will also be able to relax throughout your stay.
