The Botahtaung Pagoda is located on the Botahtaung Paya Road. which was named after the Pagoda. It is situated way downtown beside the Yangon River. The Pagoda overlooked the pleasant water front of the river.
The Botataung Pagoda is hollow inside and you can walk through it. It’s a sort of mirrored maze inside the pagoda with glass show-cases containing many of the ancient relics and artifacts which were sealed inside the earlier pagoda. Above this interesting interior. the golden pagoda spire rises to 40 metres (132 feet).
It rises on the circular base and especially its umbrella or country at the top of the spire in quite different from the conventional design.
