Bagayar monastery

Bagayar monastery

The well over hundred years old Bagaya Monastery is an exquisite example of traditional architecture, with soaring tiered roofs and heavy teak doors carved in high relief of celestial figures bearing lotus buds.

The building is set on a high platform and supported with whole teak logs, and has brick stairs leading to an open air pavilion where the older monks walk in meditation.

Before the break of dawn, young monk novices rise to fill the cavernous monastery with the chant of their morning prayers.
