Hpo Win Daung
Across the Chindwin River and 25 km west of Monywa a long mountain range features 492 caves temples built inside the limestone cliffs.
The Hpo Win Daung Caves, built between the 14th and 18th centuries, are packed with 2.588 Buddhas and some boldly coloured murals.
The cave chambers vary in condition.
In some there are giant reclining Buddhas; others are packed with smaller Buddhas and have streams of light shining in from holes in the walls.
Sadly, relect smugglers have feasted on some statues, but much remains intact and thankfully unrestored.
