Po Win Daung Caves

Po Win Daung Caves

The journey to Po Win Daung, though only 25km west of Monywa, takes the traveler across the Chindwin River and through arid landscape, remote villages, a petrified forest and a copper mine. The cave itself is a series of openings running along a mountainside. Inside, paths lead to meditation spaces and different sized caves where Buddha images are carved in relief from the sandstone hillside. Mural paintings cover the walls and ceilings of the cave, depicting the jataka reincarnation stories of the Buddha.
